Libraries across Europe are rolling out research support services, including for Research Data Management (RDM), and helping libraries to play a key role in this field is essential to one of LIBER’s core strategic objectives: Enabling Open Science.
To discuss current developments and initiatives in this field, our Scholarly Communications & Research Infrastructures Steering Committee organised a workshop on the topic at LIBER’s 2016 Annual Conference. A report of the workshop, which focused on transferring skills and knowledge through training, is now available.
Presentations from the workshop are also available:
- Research Data Services in European Libraries: Current Offerings and Plans for the Future (Wolfram Horstmann and Carol Tenopir)
- Current Practices around RDM Training in Europe (Jens Nieschulze)
- Training and Education for RDM in Denmark (Jesper Boserup and Filip Kruse)
- Finland’s Open Science Training Programme (Sari Räisänen)
- Research Data Management Training for PHD Students at University of Helsinki (Monica Allardt, Susanna Nykyri, Katri Larmo and Liisa Siipilehto)
- University of Edinburgh RDM Training: MANTRA & beyond (Robin Rice)
LIBER’s community of library professionals will be discussing RDM once again at our 2017 Annual Conference in Patras, Greece. Does your institution have RDM insights to share? The Call for Papers is now open.
