Keynote Talk: "Big Data, Little Data, or No Data? Scholarship, Stewardship, and Building the UC Digital Library" by Christine L. Borgman.

The University of California has pioneered digital library services for the last four decades, since the early days of Melvyl and the Division of Library Automation. These services now encompass bibliographic records, digital content, research data, and more. Data stewardship reflects the array of digital library challenges in both theory and practice. While the popularity of “big data” reflects the growth of data-intensive research, “little data” remains the norm in those many fields where evidence is scarce and labor-intensive to acquire. Until recently, data was considered part of the process of scholarship, essential but largely invisible. In the “big data” era, data have become valuable products to be captured, shared, reused, and stewarded for the long term. They also have become contentious intellectual property to be protected. Public policy leans toward open access to research data, but rarely provides the public investment necessary to sustain access. Data practices are local, varying from field to field, individual to individual, and country to country. Until the larger questions of knowledge infrastructures and stewardship are addressed by research communities, “no data” may become the norm for many fields. This talk will explore the stakes and stakeholders in research data and implications for policy and practice, drawn from the presenter’s recent book, Big Data, Little Data, No Data: Scholarship in the Networked World (MIT Press, 2015).
