Publishing frontiers: The library reboot

In der aktuellen Nature-Ausgabe schreibt Richard Monastersky über den Wandel bibliothekarischer Tätigkeit durch Open Data:

At Johns Hopkins and many other top universities, libraries are aiming to become more active partners in the research enterprise — altering the way scientists conduct and publish their work. Libraries are looking to assist with all stages of research, by offering guidance and tools for collecting, exploring, visualizing, labelling and sharing data. “I see us moving up the food chain and being co-contributors to the creation of new knowledge,” says Sarah Thomas, the head of libraries at the University of Oxford, UK.
