organization and have not voted in the Partnership/ESIP leadership
election, please vote by Thursday, so that the ESIP Annual Business meeting

*News from around the Federation - **SciData Program: *
Funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the SciData
project will recruit and select eight students that will work with faculty
mentors, scientific organizations and earn a master’s degree in Information
Science. During this two-year program graduate program, starting Fall 2012,
each student will be immersed in teaching and training that relates to
digital scientific data curatorship.  The SciData program is uniquely
positioned to meet the demand for digital science data curation professions
through its close relationships with nearby science agencies such as the
Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Information International Associates
(IIa), the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent), and the Office
of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI).  Because SciData will be
intricately connected to the School of Information Sciences, the School's
participation in the NSF-funded DataONE project and the School's previous
IMLS-funded project in science librarianship will provide students with
additional opportunities to expand their experiences in scientific data
curation. [Brochure attached]
