Date & time: Tuesday 1st March - 16:30 - 18:00 - Working Meeting Session 3
Meeting title: IG Archives and Records Professionals for Research Data
As research data curation practice develops, it appears that there are potential overlaps with the established principles and practice of records management and archivistics. This being the case, the Archives and Records Professionals for Research Data IG currently has two aims:
*to communicate and coordinate with archives/records management professionals who may be outside of RDA to foster synergies, bring them into RDA, and bring relevant RDA IG and WG activities to the attention of the archives/records management field.
*to provide a forum for discussion of how archives/records management principles can apply to data curation.
To validate the suggested dual aims of the IG.
To ascertain whether there are relevant outputs that the IG should consider addressing through the development of a WG.
To consider how the IG can encourage the involvement of recordkeeping professionals in RDA.
