D104 - Big Data & Libraries

2:15 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
DeAnza III (Portola)
Amy Affelt, Director, Database Research Worldwide, Compass Lexecon & Author, The Accidental Data Scientist: Big Data Applications & Opportunities for Librarians & Information Professionals

This session looks briefly at Big Data projects from the perspective of info pros—-organizations that undertook initiatives that worked well, those not yet using Big Data in the challenges they are facing, and the lessons learned from those that experienced Big Data project failures. Then, in an interactive format, it explores how info pros can get involved with Big Data projects—discussing challenges in the organization, the marketplace, and the world—and brainstorming about how info pros can find and analyze data to help our constituents creatively confront these issues head-on.
