Posted: 15-05-2019 Topics: Research Data Management

LIBER’s Research Data Management Working Group has published two case studies showcasing research data management support provided by the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and the University Library at UiT The Arctic University of Norway.

The TU Delft case study focuses on the disciplines of design, engineering and technical sciences, while the UiT case study presents UiT’s research development support services for language and linguistics.

The case studies investigate research data support services by looking at the nature of support services expected by researchers, the institutional services in place, the needs and challenges in terms of research data management support, the policy context and the implementation of data management and support services at the two institutions.

“These case studies are a great opportunity to share experiences, and what is done at the level of libraries – on how RDM was made practical. More and more this is with a focus on a particular discipline,” says Rob Grim, co-chair of the RDM working group, Erasmus University Rotterdam. “We hope that members learn from them and get inspired, and engage the LIBER community around these topics,” adds Birgit Schmidt, co-chair, Göttingen State and University Library.

The case studies are available on Zenodo:

Disciplinary Case Study: Data Management Support at TU Delft

Disciplinary Case Study: The Tromsø Repository
of Language and Linguistics (TROLLing)

You are invited to contribute a case study from your institution.
