HUD Charges Band of America with Discriminating against Homebuyers with Disabilities
As scientific data grows in scale across all scientific disciplines, the need for professionals trained in the management and curation of scientific data is also growing. To meet this need, the University of Tennessee School of Information Sciences has developed SciData, a new master’s initiative focusing on science data management. Partners include the Institute of Museum and Library Services along with Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Information International Associates (IIa), the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, and the Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI). For more information, see the press release.
