Bhatt, Jay. (January 2021). Information Awareness of Research Data in Science and Engineering. Virtual International Conference on Statistical Tools and Techniques for Research Data Analysis (ICSTTRDA 2021),  the School of Library and Information Science, Central University of Gujarat, Gandhinagar, India (ICSTTRDA 2021), Central University of Gujarat, India.

As new academic research initiatives become increasingly interdisciplinary, it is imperative that science and engineering librarians develop and implement new approaches to the dissemination of library research tools and techniques. At Drexel University, several such initiatives have resulted in collaborative research in areas such as Smart Materials, Environmental Science, Information Security, Next Generation Manufacturing, Neurosciences, and Biosensors, and Tissue Engineering. But what good is information if you do not know how to get it?

The Science and Engineering information landscape is complex and heterogeneous, which demands specialized tools to effectively navigate – This is easily available at your fingertips through Drexel University Libraries. Whether It’s the latest journal or conference articles, authoritative handbooks, material property data, patents, or standards we have tools that can surface trustworthy and traceable insights to drive your decision-making.

Faculty and students need to be aware of how to discover data from these variety of resources that cover a broad spectrum of academic disciplines. How can emerging technology awareness tools function for faculty and students to keep them updated with new data generated and archived in databases/repositories? It is this knowledge which will empower them to accomplish new research, solve design problems, and contribute in their lifelong learning endeavors.

This presentation highlights important data related resources available through Drexel University Libraries that students will find very for their design and research projects.
