Services, Policy, Guidance and Training: Improving Research Data Management at One Institution

Presenter 1
Robin Rice
Edinburgh University

Data management is a growing area of service for data archives and university libraries alike. How do data professionals support researchers in their efforts to manage, disseminate, and preserve their research data? What are the roles of librarians and data archivists? This group of presenters will detail how they and their colleagues have been enabling this work at their institution through a variety of activities such as: identifying the needs of researchers, engaging researchers further upstream in the data life cycle, working with researchers and colleagues across disciplines, involving librarians, conducting trainings, developing learning materials and guidelines, and facilitating the implementation of data management plans.
