Data as the New Text
An Innovative Studio

Designed to facilitate an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas surrounding the evolving use and sharing of data, the Data Studio is home to Kennedy Library's new Data Services program. Discover, explore, create and share data through technology, consultation, collaboration and informal learning.

Located in Room 111-C, the Data Studio builds on the Kennedy Library's strong GIS program as well as its new Data Curation services program that supports data management, sharing and preservation.

"The Data Studio will provide an environment for students and faculty to utilize new technologies and software, investigate visualization techniques, discover innovative instructional formats, facilitate retrieval of data sets and more," said Data Services Program Coordinator, Jeanine Scaramozzino.

The Cal Poly community is invited to attend brown bag lunches and seminars by guests from on- and off-campus. Proposed topics include GIS and business, epidemiology studies, data curation and data management plans.

Discussion schedules will be posted to the library's Facebook page.
