RDM challenges and opportunities for libraries

Last Thursday we took part in this “challenges and opportunities” event at CILIP organised by LIRG, the Library and Information Research Group. Delegates heard from TraD and RDMRose of the training material the two JISC-funded projects have created (in our case supportDM), and engaged in some activities using the projects’ materials including

  • self-assessment checklist RURDMReady from RDMRose
  • template for researcher interviews from supportDM

There was also lively discussion about roles for librarians in supporting research data management. We were meeting just before the final session of the supportDM course (more on this soon), so couldn’t feed back to the participants what the experience of academic liaison librarians at UEL. It was a worthwhile event, and good to share the experience of the two projects.
