As researchers and scholars increasingly move toward data-driven research, librarians are offering a growing number of services to support a diverse set of research needs. In this webinar, presenters will discuss large-scale projects and one-to-one consulting at the institute, university and consortium levels. They will explore services provided by librarians with technical expertise in areas such as linked data and data visualization, as well as the role of liaison librarians.
