Iamslic 2016 Conference: Introducing the speakers

Dear All,

The IAMSLIC communications team would like to introduce you to our speakers for our 42nd Iamslic Conference in Mérida, Mexico on the 16th-20th October 2016.

Over the next few weeks we’ll introduce you to two or three speakers a week to whet your appetite for the conference ahead. So please tune into this blog each week and tweet and retweet our links from @iamslicorg #IamMex16. We’ve included a photograph of all our speakers to accompany their short biography, this should help you recognise more people at the conference. Our speakers have all volunteered to make themselves available for a chat over breaks and have included their interests, so we should all have something in common to talk about.

It’s shaping up to be an excellent conference; I’m sure those of you who have booked already are very excited. For those still deciding on their options, I’ve no doubt these talks will sway you and we’ll see you in Mérida!

In no particular order, our debut presenter introduced here is Jaime Goldman:


Jaime Goldman is the Librarian III at Nova Southeastern University’s Oceanography Library, where she manages all aspects of the library’s operation. She earned her BS degree in Marine Science and Biology from Coastal Carolina University, MS degree in Marine Biology and Coastal Zone Management from Nova Southeastern University, and her MS degree in Library & Information Science from Florida State University. Combining her experience and education in the marine and library sciences, Jaime enjoys working as a subject specialist at the Oceanography Library, where she has the opportunity to work closely with students, researchers, and faculty to meet their education and research needs. Jaime is especially involved in reference, research, instruction, online tutorials, ETDs, budgets, and collection development. Jaime is currently serving as the SAIL representative to IAMSLIC through 2017.

Title: Discourse on data: research data management
Abstract: This round table discussion aims to explore challenges and opportunities related to building and maintaining research data management (RDM) services in scientific institutions. Possible discussion prompts include: outreach and engagement, building expertise and training, data management plans, RDM tools, keeping up with funding agency requirements, and storage solutions. People attending who have RDM services in their institution should be ready to discuss their experiences and lessons learned. Attendees who are interested in starting RDM services at their institution should consider possible starting points and potential issues with service implementation so that the group can discuss and workshop possible solutions.

Please feel free to come talk to Jamie at the conference! She is especially interested in SCUBA diving and exploring new places!
