The LIBER E-Science working group has published its final report on research data management.
LIBER installed the ‘E-Science working group’ in 2010 to investigate the role libraries can and should play in the field of E-Science. The group decided to focus on research data as it was felt to be the most urgent element of e-science that is of relevance to the community of (research) libraries.
The group held three workshops: the first during the LIBER-conference 2011 in Barcelona, the second during the IDCC 2011 conference in Bristol and the third and last one during the LIBER-conference 2012 in Tartu. The results of the first two workshops were used as a basis for compiling recommendations to the LIBER community.
The “10 recommendations for libraries to support research data management” were finalized and prioritized during the final workshop at the LIBER-conference in Tartu.
