Clifford Lynch on cyberinfrastructure and e-research

Clifford Lynch, The Institutional Challenges of Cyberinfrastructure and E-Research, Educause Connect, August 22, 2007.  An 80 minute podcast of Lynch’s keynote address the 2007 Seminars On Academic Computing (Snowmass Village, Colorado, August 8, 2007).

Abstract:   It has become clear that scholarly practice and scholarly communication across a wide range of disciplines are being transfigured by a series of developments in IT and networked information.  While this has been widely discussed at the national and international levels in the context of large-scale advanced scientific projects, the challenges at the level of individual universities and colleges may prove more complex and more difficult.  This presentation will focus on these challenges, as well as the development of truly institution-wide strategies that can support and advance the promises of e-research.
