Research data management has emerged as a need among academic researchers and liaisons are building skills in response. This one-day workshop will assist liaisons to identify their existing skills and mindsets that transfer to research data management services and then create a learning plan for the RDM specific knowledge needed to serve their subject disciplines. Tools, hints, and tricks will be shared that facilitate partnerships on campus with disciplinary faculty and with other RDM service providers.
Workshop participants will be able to. . .
*Identify data within the research process and lifecycle in order to articulate the role of the libraries in the management of data to researchers.
*Learn how to develop expertise in the nuances of disciplinary requirements for data management in order to educate their faculty and students about data best practices for their discipline.
*Articulate specific existing skills that they already possess as librarians which transfer to data services in order to begin building a toolkit of research data management skills.
*Identify campus partners in research data management in order to create an environment of research data management support for their faculty.
*Articulate the parts of a data management plan in order to describe its role as a living document within a research project.
*Apply their relevant prior knowledge of their disciplines in order to create a research data management interview plan in order to facilitate faculty engagement.
