Organisational Assembly at P5

22 Jan 2015
Groups audience: 

Most of you will be aware that it has become our practice to divide the Organisational Assembly at our plenaries into two parts:  a session open to all and a session limited to only those who have signed the membership agreement and singalled their intention to pay the Organisational Member Fee.  The Open Session is designed to present the organisational perspective to the wider community and to encourage new organisations to explore the benefits of OA membership.  The closed session which follows a break is designed to provide OA members with priviledged acces to RDA Leadership and detailed briefings on the life of RDA together with the opportunity to offer advice and to place organisational needs and imperatives before Council, TAB, and the Secretariat.

During the open session on Monday, March 9th at Plenary 5 in San Diego we want to have a panel of Organisational Members speak to Challenges in Data Sharing; How can they be addressed, what could RDA do to help organisations meet those challenges? How are  organisations addressing the challenges?

We need three volunteers to speak on the panel.  We will want this to be quite interactive, so from our panelists we really are only looking for a 5 minute opening presentation that will stimulate discussion.

If you are interested in being on the panel or wish to nominate someone for the panel, would you reply to this email with your name, organisation, and a very brief summary of the tact you would take.  The chairs will select from among the volunteers to reflect the geographical, sector, and gender diversity of RDA.

Please reply by February 1st.

    Dear Walter,
    I could present something like "Seven common objections to data sharing and how to overcome them”, see: http://www.slideshare.net/pkdoorn/seven-common-objections-to-data-sharin..., especially slide 3 and 4. I could add one or two slides focusing on what organisations can do to influence this, and how the RDA can help. In a way, what needs to be done is clear: research funding and research performing organisations can make demands on data management, and requiring that data is shared is part of these demands. The Science Europe Working Group on Research Data , of which I am a member, is working into this direction (Science Europe is an association of European Research Funding Organisations and Research Performing Organisations, based in Brussels).
    Best wishes,
    Peter Doorn

    Dear Walter,
    A possibility would be to present, on behalf of LIBER, the opportunities and challenges arising at individual research institutions in supporting RDM („Local Support for Global Research Data“). As such this could include relations between subject-specific services and long tail data, service sustainability, ownership and curation responsibilities, getting "good scientific practice" and funders' requirements in the institutional awareness (specifically at PhD level) or person identification and grant linking (CRIS). Even though LIBER is a library organization, the RDM work has an institutional focus and would try to provide a balanced perspective also from IT Services and Research Offices. And of course it would be linked to the highly attended RDA IGs "Libraries for Research Data“ and "Long Tail" and the new BoF for CRIS.
    Best

    Hello
    I'm happy to talk to Griffith University's case and bring an Australian
    perspective to the session. I could also touch on the national situation. I
    can talk to library, or eresearch support or enterprise support within the
    Uni.
    We are a little bit peculiar though in that we don't have a "library"
    organisational unit and have an integrated IT/Library Division. The two
    organisational units which cover most of the traditional library services
    are Library and Learning Services (physical spaces, literacy and faculty
    librarians) and Information Management (which covers acquisitions, library
    systems and repositories but also pulls in enterprise central records and
    enterprise Sharepoint etc).
    I will have to work hard to keep it to 5 mins so would like some input on
    what key aspects you would like me to highlight.
    Malcolm
