Big Data = Big Opportunities

Many organizations have implemented recycling and other “green” initiatives, such as procurement programs that mandate buying printer and copy paper that is 100 percent post-consumer waste. Yet researchers and project leaders at these organizations typically give little or no thought to recycling the data they produce, much of which could prove useful in other contexts.

Some organizations are now paying greater attention to managing their data and encouraging the sharing, re-use and re-purposing of it. Information professionals increasingly are being called upon to lead these initiatives, especially those related to data curation, which is distinguished by its emphases on adding value to data throughout its life cycle and enhancing its usefulness.

The March/April issue of Information Outlook contains articles that address both of these emphases. Steve Goldstein of Alacra offers recommendations on how info pros can add value to data, while Daureen Nesdill of the University of Utah  discusses the benefits of using electronic lab notebooks to enhance research efforts.
