On May 5, from 10:30 – 11:30 CST, Judy Ruttenberg, SHARE program director for the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), and Cynthia Hudson-Vitale, ARL Visiting Program Officer for SHARE, will provide a one-hour webinar for the Texas Digital Library community on the SHARE project, highlighting the latest technical and community developments and how TDL libraries can participate and benefit from SHARE. Ruttenberg and Hudson-Vitale will cover the what, why, and how of SHARE as an open source and higher education effort to build a free, open data set of research and scholarly activity across the life cycle. SHARE is addressing institutions’ need for data about their own activities, and libraries’s mission to collect, provide access, and preserve those activities. The presentation will also describe a new Curation Association program that SHARE is launching to involve library professionals in curating the SHARE (meta)data set in a professional development and service learning context.
