WEBINAR | How to assist researchers in sharing their research data

Ramping up library services to encourage and enable research data sharing

Sept 08, 2015

Join research data librarians and leaders in developing library infrastructure and services, as well as Mendeley's research data expert, for insight into how to help researchers share their research data — from instruction and tools to motivating them with research data impact metrics.
The scientific community is expanding its outlook on the data that comes out of research. As many funding bodies and governments begin to mandate that research data be made available, researchers are looking for ways to publish and share their data. Learn how librarians are playing an important role in these efforts by promoting data literacy, offering research data tools and services, and ensuring that data is not only published but discoverable. And enjoy a special preview of Mendeley Data, a new data sharing platform.
