Abstract: The Internet of Things (IoT) has become more than just a buzzword in technology circles. It’s even fair to say the IoT has evolved into a mature concept impacting a broad range of business sectors, especially including government data collection, information services, and scholarly research.
The IoT represents significant potential to advance scholarly research and communication, yet what are the implications for government agencies and information services when it comes to the IoT? How will researchers leverage the IoT to enable groundbreaking advances in their fields of study? What role are federal agency libraries playing, in concert with their private sector partners, to take advantage of the IoT in fulfilling their missions?
To explore this topic in-depth, join CENDI, NFAIS, Research Data Alliance/US (RDA/US) and the National Academies Board on Research Data and Information for a one-day workshop, Friday, December 9, 2016, for data professionals on the evolving concept of the “Internet of Things” and its impact on scientific data and information management.
