G. Sayeed Choudhury, Associate Dean for Research Data Management and Hodson Director of the Digital Research and Curation Center at Johns Hopkins University Sheridan Libraries

Learn about how faculty and staff at Johns Hopkins University Sheridan Libraries are building research infrastructure to support open scholarship for a range of disciplines—spanning the sciences to the humanities—at the Purdue University Libraries’ upcoming guest talk by Sayeed Choudhury.

The Associate Dean for Research Data Management and Hodson Director of the Digital Research and Curation Center at Johns Hopkins University Sheridan Libraries, Choudhury will present “Research Infrastructure for Open Scholarship” at 10 a.m. Thursday, April 26 in Stewart Center, room 320. The talk is free and open to the public.

“Over the course of 20 years, at the Sheridan Libraries, we have learned and adapted our approach based on both local developments on university campuses and broader developments within the private sector and government sector (including data management plans, in the latter case). While there are multiple units on any research campus that play an important role in building and supporting research infrastructure, the library may be uniquely positioned to support a diverse set of researchers, and perhaps more importantly, to identify possible interrelationships or connections between those disciplines,” he explained.

This talk offers an opportunity to hear about the Sheridan Libraries as a case study within the broader context of open scholarship and research infrastructure.
