Keeping Current in Social Science Data (Without Paddling Upstream)

Presenter 1
Joanne Juhnke
University of Wisconsin-Madison

Keeping current with the field of social science data, in a world of networked knowledge, is no trivial undertaking. On the one hand, the proliferation of information can challenge even seasoned professionals, while presenting a daunting array of possibilities to a newcomer in the field. On the other hand, the latest news and information about data can sometimes be quite well-hidden. This presentation will examine sources and strategies for balancing the flow of data-news while keeping abreast of news and developments in the field. A companion Web site will be available at the Data & Program Library Service (DPLS), UW-Madison.
