Research Data Management services & the Library: where do you stand ? (1)

Jean-Blaise Claivaz, Floriane Muller

University of Geneva Library, Switzerland

Tools, potential needs and areas related to specific steps in the research data life cycle will be explored. The participants will have the opportunity to indicate the areas where they are already involved or offering services, those they hope to add to their offering and those they believe have nothing to do with the library. We will discuss the results and see whether there seem to be a consensus or not on research data matters where librarians may play a role or distanciate themselves from.

The presenters will briefly mention the activities undertaken in their own context and we will investigate all toghether whether other insitutions have similar contexts (insitutional policy on RDM, national requirement for DMP, possibility of collaboration with other services, etc).

Each participant will eventually have the possibility to share useful resources, tips and/or key recommandations for success.

We intend to make available online (either only for the participants or for all, as will be defined at the end of the workshop) all the material and knowledge gathered during the workshop, so it can serve as a panorama and reusable knowledge bank.

During the workshop, participants will connect and exchange with colleagues.

Learning outcomes : After this workshop, each participant should be able to list research data management topics in which the library can play a role; give examples of concrete services provided by libraries with regards to research data management; justify the pertinence of developping a service linked to research data management; compare various services approaches and their implications; compare and contrast their own context with that of other institutions and countries; connect with other colleagues and benefit from their experiences; locate resources useful for their users and/or the development of their own services; develop partnership and collaboration with colleagues at other institutions for future activities; reflect on their offer and level of service and formulate wishes for future developments.

Type of interactivity : The workshop will be using various interactivity devices to stimulate exchanges and gather participants experiences and feedbacks. We will use an icebreaker and we will provide various opportunities for the participants to move around the room to vote, report feedback on sticky notes, etc…

Level : Intermediate

Target audience : The ideal audience for the workshop would be people having a knowledge or involved in Research Data questions or services within their institution. We expect open minded colleagues willing to share experiences, questions, doubts, or intended developments. Any colleagues interested in the subject are welcome, even if their library does not have an offering on the topic for the moment.

Preparation for the session : No
