About Yasmeen Shorish

I coordinate cross-campus engagement with the Libraries and Educational Technologies data services, in order to provide support, information, and resources to users interested in data management, data storage, and high-end computing needs. I work to enhance knowledge and awareness of data information literacy on campus, which includes the discovery, management, and curation of data, as well as instruction in the methodologies for such to both students and faculty. My research interests include data information literacy, changes in scholarly communication, and digital curation.
