University-wide Data Management Services:
Cross-campus Collaborations at Indiana
Heather Coates, Digital
Scholarship & Data Management Librarian,
Stacy Konkiel, Science Data Management
As the role of academic libraries evolves
to include research data curation and management
services, librarians on Indiana University
campuses have developed a university-wide suite of
data services. We will provide a brief
overview of the drivers for these services,
discuss general best practices for research data
management, provide an overview of our
consultation services (for metadata, data
preservation, and funding agency data management
plans), and describe campus-specific
resources. Faculty from regional campuses
are especially encouraged to attend this event.
Presentation slides and audio will be
available via the Connect Meeting Service
(formerly known as "Breeze"). Go
to view and
listen to presentation. If you are not a
registered user for Connect Meeting/Breeze, select
the "Enter as a Guest" option.
You can also follow and contribute to the
presentation and discussion on twitter: #dlbbspring2013
