Cozying up to the CODATA Elephant: Some Ideas for IASSIST Outreach

Presenter 1
Ernie Boyko
Carelton University

One of the thrusts of the IASSIST strategic plan (2004-2009) was to encourage "collaborations and strategic alliances with related organizations". CODATA is one of the organizations with which IASSIST has started to collaborate. The mission of CODATA is to strengthen international science for the benefit of society by promoting improved scientific and technical data management and use. Sounds a lot like IASSIST! Thus far, collaboration has consisted mainly of having IASSIST members attend the annual CODATA conference and having CODATA members attend IASSIST conferences. The question is... what else can we do to strengthen this relationship? Wendy Watkins and Ernie Boyko from Canada have been officially invited to be observers on the Canadian National Committee for CODATA. This presentation will outline a possible strategy for IASSIST members to use in the context of their National and Regional CODATA committees. By working individually, IASSIST members may be able to strengthen IASSIST's overall connection with CODATA.
