Symposium on Institutional Data Services at Edinburgh

By robin | February 2, 2009

The Edinburgh University Data Library celebrated 25 years of support for staff and students in their discovery, access, use and management of research datasets. On 5 December 2008, following on from the Digital Curation Centre international conference held in Edinburgh that week, friends and colleagues from near and far gathered in the afternoon at the EDINA offices to celebrate the milestone with short speeches and cutting the cake, along with food, drink and toasts. Earlier in the day, about 45 professionals and academics gathered to consider the significant changes that the Data Library has been part of and might look forward to in the future. A number of IASSIST members took part.
