AITS and Technology Services are partnering to provide Database Administrative services (DBA). The joint DBA team will be able to serve the University community and expand their service offerings. By partnering, Tech Services and AITS will have more support resources for customers, and will be able to improve their offerings.
If you need assistance with database services, you can still contact support the way you previously have, but you may end up talking to some new people.
For questions contact Chris Newman.

rOpenSci has three Fellowships available. Deadline to apply Sept 1, 2017.
rOpenSci promotes a culture of open, transparent, and reproducible research across various research domains. Everything we do, from developing high-quality open-source software for data science and, software review, to building community through events like our community calls and annual unconference, is geared toward lowering barriers to reproducible, open science.
The Research Data Service is hosting a visit by Marta Teperek, the current Research Data Facility Manager at the University of Cambridge, from July 13-14. She’ll be presenting on their data services program on Friday, July 14, and all are welcome to attend.
2:00 PM Friday, July 14th
Commons at Grainger Library (Second Floor)
How to make research data services work? How to create successful services which will be useful to the academic community? Marta will talk about her experience leading the development of research data services in Cambridge. She will talk about the Cambridge strategy for service development and innovation, including the initial failed attempt to get the research community engaged. She will then explain specific undertaking which allowed Cambridge to become more democratic and to better engage both researchers and staff. The talk will conclude with short reflections into what worked in Cambridge, what did not go so well and what could have been done differently.
Dr Marta Teperek did a Ph.D. in molecular biology at the University of Cambridge. Having first-hand experience of problems that researchers face on a day-to-day basis, with the journals’ impact factor, and not the quality of the research process, dictating the future of their academic career, Marta decided to get professionally involved in advocating for Open Research and for better reproducibility in science. In 2015 she joined the University of Cambridge and led the creation and development of the Research Data Management Facility, supporting researchers at the University of Cambridge in good management and sharing of research data. While at Cambridge, Marta initiated and overseen the Data Champions programme and the Open Research Pilot. In August 2017 Marta will move to TU Delft in Netherlands, where she will lead the Research Data Stewardship project.
