The NYU Data Service Studio: A Center for Collaborative Data Services in the Library [view poster]
This poster will illustrate the creation, implementation, and progression of the New York University’s Data Service Studio (DSS), a collaborative venture between NYU Libraries and Information Technology Services (ITS) designed to provide support for data-oriented research projects. Covering the DSS’s life from its opening in the fall of 2008 through its envisioned future, the poster will describe services offered as well as the importance of its interdisciplinary nature and staff. The Data Service Studio’s services, which are continually evolving, include a lab equipped with hardware and software to support statistical and geographical computing, statistical consultation and instruction, tutorials and training materials on research software and methods, and support for acquisition of data sets for use by patrons. Envisioned additional services include repository services, colloquia, expanded instructional support, and partnerships across the university and beyond. The full-time DSS staff is currently comprised of three statisticians, two librarians, and a geographer, along with graduate student consultants from five NYU schools and six unique degree programs. This poster will serve to introduce NYU’s Data Service Studio to the social science data community, inviting discussion and suggestions about data services and role they play within academic libraries.
