Innovating Professional Education.
DATALIS™ is a collaboration between UC San Diego, Drexel University, OCLC, and the University of New Mexico.
How might we…
help libraries collaborate to innovate professional education that impacts recruitment, growth, and retention?
Through online meetings in January 2024, we will learn more about our problem.
In February, we will work on understanding the problem and create possible solutions.
In March, we’ll gather to refine our ideas and develop possible future pathways.
Partner for results.
This project is being conducted with the support of these organizations thru LEADING.

What is DATALIS™?
DATALIS™ is an integral part of the LEADING initiative, funded by IMLS, designed to enhance Data Science expertise among early career and doctoral students in the Library and Information Science (LIS) field. It focuses on innovating professional education and exploring the future landscape of professional and continuing education in this domain.
Who are the collaborators in the DATALIS™ project?
DATALIS™ is a collaborative effort involving UC San Diego, Drexel University, OCLC, and the University of New Mexico. It brings together experts and representatives from each of these institutions to contribute to the project.
How does DATALIS™ incorporate Design Thinking?
DATALIS™ utilizes a multi-stage design thinking methodology called an “Innovation Funnel,” which is aimed at identifying and addressing key challenges in the LIS field. This approach helps in crafting more effective and user-centered solutions.
