A two-day workshop on Research Data Management in Libraries was held at LIBER’s 2015 Annual Conference. A report summarising the outcomes of the plenary discussions and the outbreak sessions is now available.

The workshop targeted two core activity areas:

  1. The translation of institutional data management policies into research support services.
  2. The need to support researchers in the creation and review of data management plans.

Recommendations on questions to consider were collected, as were practical recommendations derived from the cases under discussion. In addition, participants were asked to provide suggestions on how LIBER could help to strengthen the role of libraries in this activity area.
