Praise from the digital humanities community for eResearch NZ 2013

The eResearch NZ 2013 has been a fantastic success. It's very encouraging to begin to see some public endorsement come through. Penny Carnaby, Head Librarian at Lincoln University, has had this to say:

Erin, Deborah, Hugh and Stuart Charters from ESD attended the eResearch NZ conference at UCAN this week. Erin and Deborah’s paper was really well received and, if I am permitted to be really proud of them both then I certainly am! This was a watershed conference for research librarians throughout the country. It was the first time that that there has been a significant contribution from the sector in relation to e-research and Open Research. Colleagues from Otago, Canterbury and Auckland Universities were there and we have agreed to work much more closely with CONZUL (http://www.universitiesnz.ac.nz/aboutus/sc/conzul) on a common approach to data management and curation and data literacy across the sector.
