Mann and the BHU library will share expertise in managing digital information resources, an area of particular strength for Mann, in order to expand active cyber literacy skills widely in the research, extension and farming communities. Two Indian librarians will be at Cornell in July and August 2012 to be immersed in information literacy and public computing training, and a larger group of Indian librarians will come for similar training in summer 2013.

Ahead of the Curve: Mentoring for Emerging Careers in eScience Librarianship Cornell University Library (CUL) is partnering with the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University (SU) to support its eScience Fellows Program through a mentorship program for enrolled students. The program provides students with opportunities for involvement with world-class science libraries and innovative eScience projects. The eScience Librarianship program, a specialized curriculum within SU’s MS in Library and Information Science program, is designed to prepare students for professional roles supporting scientific practice and communication in eScience environments. Curriculum components include scientific data management, data and collaboration technologies, data services, workflows, and metadata for scientific data sets. The overarching goals of the mentorship program are to provide students with the opportunity to gain exposure to the practice of science and eScience librarianship, and develop career skills and professional contacts.

Conservation and Digitization of the Trials Pamphlet Collection at Cornell University Library A project to conserve and digitize the 321 pamphlets in the Trials Pamphlet collection at the Cornell University Law Library. The pamphlets range in date from the late 1600s to the late 1800s. As a collection, these trial pamphlets capture a formative period in American history from the early years of the republic, through the turmoil of the Civil War, to the emergence of the United States as a leading industrial nation in the late 1800s. Because cases were not officially reported on until the 1830s, the collection is one of the few ways to research trials from the 18th and early 19th centuries. The project will ensure in-person access to the original artifact at Cornell and provide worldwide access to the collection via the Internet. With funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Park Service through the Save America's Treasures program.
