Abstract: Most librarians are much less familiar with the data-generating research phases of the scientific research cycle than with post-research. Data science and data management are an awkward fit with the text-oriented constructs and systems that still dominate library relationships with science communication and publishing. Becoming literate in cyberinfrastructure means understanding cyberinfrastructure, eResearch, collaboratories, collaboration science, computational and grid science, data curation, the Semantic Web, open data, data archiving, digital preservation, and data management, and how they relate to each other Phases of reporting, communication and publication are less distinct. When used in discussions of eResearch, a vocabulary familiar to librarians (archival, curation, stewardship, provenance) takes on new or specialized meaning major cause of confusion
