Data Management & Preservation: Creating a new service for researchers

Presenter 1
Carol Perry
University of Guelph

In January 2010, the University of Guelph Library launched a new data management and preservation service for researchers on campus. While the new service was in its initial stages of development, research groups on campus were eager to volunteer their research projects to serve as pilot test cases. Ultimately, two large, long-term research groups were selected and, following the administration of needs assessments, management plans have been developed around the issues identified for each research group. This paper will track the development of the service with particular attention being paid to the complex needs of the different groups involved in the pilot project. Subsidiary services for graduate students which have been incorporated into the program will also be discussed. Reactions to these new services will be explored.
