In 2012, the LIBER working group on e‐Science formulated ‘Ten recommendations for libraries to get started with research data management’. This document has since become one of the most downloaded documents from the LIBER website.
In order to breathe life into the recommendations, the Scholarly Communication and Research Infrastructure Steering Committee collected 11 research data management case studies.
What progress have research libraries made so far? During the workshop held at the 43rd Annual LIBER Conference on 2 July 2014, the lessons learned from these case studies were presented. In addition, the 10 recommendations were assessed by means of a survey. Also, live feedback from the audience was gathered by co‐chair Wolfram Horstmann.
Finally, four different takes on how to develop RDM skills were presented. The audience was invited to exchange their personal views in several rounds of “research dating”, under the guidance of co‐chair Wilma van Wezenbeek.
Highlights from the workshop are now available to download (PDF).
