[Virtual RDA P15] Data Granularity: User Perspectives, Data Citation and Data Versioning

23 Mar 2020
Groups audience: 

Dear all,
first and foremost, I hope that all of you and your close ones are healthy
and doing well in these stressful times.
This is an announcement of the virtual BoF session (originally planned for
P15) with the topic on "*Data Granularity: User Perspectives, Data Citation
and Data Versioning*".
Given the global aspect of RDA, and in order to accommodate as many
timezones as possible, we will be holding the BoF on *April 2nd 2020*
during two identical sessions:
1. RDA P15 Granularity BoF *session #1* @ *13:00 UTC* (see *here* for
your local time
- please register here

2. RDA P15 Granularity BoF *session #2 *@ *20:00 UTC* (see *here* for
your local time
- please register here

The session is already listed on the main RDA Virtual Plenary Programme
, together with
the respective registration links - please do register to whichever session
you might be planning to attend, so we might have an idea on the level of
participation to each session.
Connection details and agenda will be common for both sessions and are
available here
The main objectives will be:
- To initiate a discussion with all relevant stakeholders (data users,
data providers, data repositories) on data citation and data versioning
within the context of data granularity and modifications on data content /
- To initiate a collaborative study on descriptions of data granularity
from the user perspective. Focus would be to identify the best way to
convey the structure of the data (from the data provider to the data user).
Granularity definitions would not be required - the description only needs
to make sense and be appropriate for the data, and clear for the data users.
Feel free to forward this invitation to any people/groups you might think
are relevant/interested to this discussion.
Kind regards and stay safe!
