Research Data Management — 2013

LCN 11.1 cover

Research data just may be the hot topic of 2013. Funding agencies are increasingly requiring that it be shared and accessible, and institutions are challenged to meet those requirements. The material itself can run the gamut from data sets to information about the researchers themselves. Libraries are taking a central role in the archiving, management and reuse of this data. To help frame some of the key issues, I suggest you start with David Marques article on page 2. From there, you can dive more deeply into insight from individuals and institutions on the leading edge of various aspects of research data management.
