Held on December 6, 2011, E-Science Day was a day-long event, funded by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine Pacific Southwest Region (NN/LM PSR). Available in a blended format (i.e. via in-person attendance and via webinar), the proceedings of the event were recorded for archival purposes.
The objectives guiding the planning of the event were: to educate regional librarians in e-science, and to expose regional librarians to information and resources designed to encourage the initiation of e-science support projects within their own libraries and institutions. The event programming featured keynote and panel presentations from experts in topics pertinent to e-science, as well as a lightning round session with presentations detailing real-life applications of e-science-related projects and initiatives. Following this educational portion, event attendees were then divided into break-out groups for the interactive/think-tank portion of the day. Each group had a set of questions to address, while the group facilitator recorded the notes that were then presented after all attendees reconvened. The intended outcome from these break-out groups and reconvening was to come up with ideas that the NN/LM PSR could pursue in future support of e-science activities among regional members. Upon completion of the event, several ideas were noted by the NN/LM PSR to be considered in future e-science planning.
