article description
Following an eScience day at the University of Utah held on February 20, 2012, the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, MidContinental Region invited participants who attended either in person or via the broadcast to engage in an online discussion. This discussion provided the opportunity for them to debrief, continue to learn from each other, and share what was significant to them about the day. Using the research cycle as the focus, participants identified roles librarians could play, the skills and knowledge they needed, and the steps they should take in order to effectively support eScience. This article summarizes the ideas that resulted from their discussion.
