Scout Calvert is the data librarian at Michigan State University Libraries. Her recent projects have traced the social aspects of data-centric knowledge production in lay communities of genealogists, livestock breeders, and citizen scientists. Dr. Calvert also investigates data and metadata practices in libraries and among academic researchers, exploring emerging research methods afforded by new forms of data, and informing data policy issues in academic libraries. This month, Scout concludes her term as a Visiting Program Officer at the Association of Research Libraries, where she has been investigating emerging technologies and practices with positive and transformative potential for research and learning.
