David Isaak CV

As the Data Services Librarian, I assist students, faculty, and staff with data discovery, data management plans, data archiving, data citation, and data preservation. I am available for individual and small group consultation, as well as workshops on these topics. I am part of Reed College's Data Services Team, which includes staff from the Library, Academic Support Services, and Instructional Technology Services. Our team members are available to help students, faculty, and staff with all stages of the research data lifecycle, from creating a data management plan to presenting and visualizing results. I can connect students, faculty, and staff to the appropriate members of the Data Services Team based on their needs.

I am also the library liaison to the Linguistics, Psychology, and Spanish departments where I am available to assist students and faculty with their research needs whether in the classroom, at the reference desk, or by appointment.


Feel free to contact me via email, phone, or IM. I hold office hours from 9-11 am on Wednesdays, but you are also welcome to drop by my office (L193) anytime. I am available by appointment as well.
