Big data for librarians

Sands Fish at 'Big Data & You'

Sands Fish at ‘Big Data & You’ talked about the challenges and new tools for librarians in the age of ‘Big data’

On Jan 14, I attended a Big Data event for librarians, Big Data & You: Preparing Current and Future Information Specialists, organized by NEASIST (New England Chapter of the Association for Information Science & Technology). I hadn’t really thought about it before, but it’s obvious that ‘Big data’ is hitting the field of library science, too. As a researcher, I search for relevant research papers in huge literature databases like ISI Web of Knowledge, PubMed, or the arXiv server almost every day!
