Research Data Management services & the Library: where do you stand ? (2 - an UnConference)

Jean-Blaise Claivaz, Floriane Muller

University of Geneva Library, Switzerland

This workshop will provide the opportunity for librarians to discuss with colleagues of matters related to research data management services and the role of the libarians on this subject.

It will build on the previous workshop "Research Data Management services & the Library: where do you stand ? (1)", which should generate reflexions and prompt questions and wishes to further investigate or discuss some research data management subjects of various kinds.

The agenda will be participants-driven but one can expect questions such as: is it the role of the library or not ? what kind of services can librarians offer with regards to Electronic laboratory notebooks, data anonymisation, …? How do librarians develop their competencies and prepare for these new roles? etc.

This second workshop is intended as a place to dig further and investigate more precise topics brought by the participants or the organizers. It can be taken in itself for participants who already have topics they want to discuss with pairs, or be taken as a sequel to the first workshop.

Learning outcomes : During the workshop, participants will connect and exchange with colleagues.The participants will be able to draw connections among ideas; examine questions and problems linked to research data management at their institution; argue to justify a stand or a decision; gather various feedbacks and points of view, discuss experiences, and eventually formulate a synthesis.

Type of interactivity : The workshop will be based on the "Open Space Technology (OST)" methodology. This allows any participant to bring to the session elements of interest that s/he wishes to discuss with pairs. The exact agenda is therefore participant-driven in an open and friendly to all space. Groups are not fixed and participants may change group when they feel they have contributed all they could or when they wish to participate in another group. The organisers will rely on participants to bring along topics but they have some in reserve if necessary.

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
