From a LIBER Blog Post:

For libraries which do not already actively promote and include the FAIR Data Principles [Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable] in their work, LIBER’s Research Data Management Working Group has produced a factsheet with tips on getting started.

The FAIR Data Principles are a set of guiding principles in order to make data findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (Wilkinson et al., 2016).

Research libraries can use the FAIR Data Principles as a framework for fostering and extending research data services.
