Shared Vision for Data Life-Cycle: Targeting Graduate Students

Mistry, Himanshu; Guss, Samantha; Rutkowski, Andy

Data literacy is increasingly playing an important role in the scholarly life of students, faculty, and staff. Each new semester adds to the complexity of the data environment and creates new needs, competencies, and resources. Understanding and navigating this environment is essential to the academic success of any researcher and scholar today. This poster highlights one approach to improve data literacy among the NYU graduate student population, which was developed by several departments within NYU's Bobst Library over the past year. This approach includes defining the data life-cycle, as well as forming a shared vision among patrons and library departments. The goal is to create a framework for students to (a.) help them understand where their own activities and research fit within the data life-cycle and (b.) increase awareness about how libraries can support them during each stage.
