New Report From OCLC: “Tour of the Research Data Management (RDM) Service Space: The Realities of Research Data Management”
Below, info about and a link to the first report in a new series from OCLC.
From the OCLC Web Site:
The Realities of Research Data Management is a four-part series that explores how research universities are addressing the challenge of managing research data throughout the research lifecycle.
Research data management (RDM) has emerged as an area of keen interest in higher education, leading to considerable investment in services, resources and infrastructure to support researchers’ data management needs. In this series, we examine the context, influences and choices higher education institutions face in building or acquiring RDM capacity—in other words, the infrastructure, services and other resources needed to support emerging data management practices.
Our findings are based on case studies of four institutions:
- University of Edinburgh (UK),
- University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (U.S.)
- Monash University (Australia)
- Wageningen University & Research (the Netherlands), in four very different national contexts.
The first report was written by three members of the OCLC Research team:
- Rebecca Bryant, Senior Program Officer
- Brian Lavoie, Research Scientist
- Constance Malpas, Strategic Intelligence Manager & Research Scientist
