Long-term collaborations between research communities and information professionals are relatively rare: yet, the expertise data librarians and other information professionals bring to the table can accelerate FAIR data sharing efforts. Drawing on findings from our recent NSF-funded workshop on promoting data sharing in STEM fields, Ithaka S+R and the Data Curation Network will host “Collaboration Between Researchers and Information Professionals to Promote Data Sharing” on August 31, 2022, from 2:00 – 3:30 pm Eastern. The webinar will bring together information professionals with a diverse range of experiences and perspectives to discuss the benefits and challenges of involving information professionals on research teams and consider ways that institutions can support greater collaboration between these communities.

This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No.2103433.
