Europe National Node

Group details

 

This is the web page for the Irish National RDA Node. We are delighted that the National Library of Ireland is the Irish National RDA Node, which means that the National Library of Ireland is responsible for the support and promotion of RDA activities in Ireland. Please visit www.nli.ie to learn more about the National Library of Ireland.

We work very closely with the Digital Repository of Ireland (www.dri.ie ) who are a partner in the current RDA EU grant, and a leader in the area of Research Data Management particularly in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

We co-organised the third RDA Plenary meeting in Dublin in 2014, and continue to promote RDA in Ireland and also abroad. This working area connects researchers working with research data in Ireland, and enables them to interconnect with broader RDA activities through e.g. RDA Working and Interest Groups. We are happy to engage with researchers, research communities and private sector actors, regarding getting involved in RDA, and testing and adopting RDA outputs and recommendations. We have a particular focus on library, archives and digital humanities activities.
