The purpose of the Agricultural Research Services Interest Group (ARSIG) would be to facilitate discussions about the Ithaka S+R Agriculture Research Support Services study and other studies about and services for Agriculture, including but not limited to those about research study development, data analysis and repositories, data management plans, GIS, finding and recruiting collaborators, and so on. We would communicate about programs, assessments and services developed, including those instituted because of the Ithaka study; coordinate USAIN actions related to the findings in the study and other relevant studies; and provide or recruit conference programming or other continuing education and answer questions related to this and other studies for USAIN members and other interested persons.
The interest group was originally aimed at the Ithaka S+R Study, but was broadened at the suggestion of prospective members.
