Profound changes in scientific research place increasing emphasis on creating, using, and re-using data. This provides both a challenge and an opportunity for research libraries. In order to respond to this change, libraries are introducing new services around research data. This has required them to seek out new partnerships and work with new technologies. This workshop will explore these new services and the approaches that research libraries have been taking to implement and deploy them.
We will hear about examples of deployed services using very different approaches: home-grown implementations, outsourced services, product based services, and partnerships with both commercial and non-commercial organizations. Each participant will have the opportunity to provide a short summary of research data services at their institution (or their most urgent requirements, if they have not yet deployed services). In addition, we will have the opportunity for small group discussion to explore benefits, costs, issues, and risks.
