This is an interactive, 2-Day virtual workshop. Participants are expected to attend each day in full.
About this Workshop:
Research data management has emerged as a need among academic researchers and liaisons are building skills in response. This online 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. Presenters will use interactive experiences to facilitate learning.
Who should participate?
This online workshop is an introductory level experience intended for liaisons who are seeking to engage with research data management for the first time, or who have a very basic knowledge of research data management. Attendees are not expected to have previous experience with research data management. The primary audience is subject liaison librarians; secondary audience includes senior library administrators, middle management and department heads, and technical services librarians and staff. Other campus partners such as Office of Research, Sponsored Programs, Technology Transfer, IRB, or campus IT may be interested but would be a tertiary audience.
After attending this online 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.
- 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.
- Learn how to develop expertise in the nuances of disciplinary requirements for data management.
- Articulate the parts of a data management plan in order to describe its role as a living document within a research project.
- Identify campus partners in research data management in order to create an environment of research data management support for their faculty.
- Plan their next steps for engaging in research data management at their institution.
