Webinar - Exploring Past, Present, and Future Outcomes of the RDA Libraries for Research Data (L4RD) Interest Group - 28 June 2021

 

Research Data have become a primary research asset that often requires continued access in the dynamic environment of mobile researchers, volatile repositories, transient products and short-lived standards. Libraries have looked after written research assets for centuries and now tackle the challenge of adapting their function to making data reliably accessible and re-usable.

Endorsed Outputs

  • 23 Things: Libraries For Research Data - overview of practical, free, online resources and tools that you can begin using today to incorporate research data management into your practice of librarianship. The document is available in 12 languages.
  • Top 10 FAIR Data & Software Things - Provides 17 topic-based, community submitted brief guides that can be used by the research community to understand how they can make their research (data and software) more FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable).

Other published Outputs

  • Engaging Researchers with Data Management: The Cookbook: https://doi.org/10.11647/OBP.0185 - book with case studies on how institutions can effectively engage with researchers about research data.
