Program Description
Research data management has emerged as a need among academic researchers and liaisons are building skills in response. This one-day workshop will assist liaisons to identify their existing skills and mindsets that transfer to research data management services and then create a learning plan for the RDM specific knowledge needed to serve their subject disciplines. Tools, hints, and tricks will be shared that facilitate partnerships on campus with disciplinary faculty and with other RDM service providers.

Learning Outcomes

Workshop participants will be able to: 

  • Identify data within the research process and lifecycle in order to articulate the role of the libraries in the management of data to researchers
  • Learn how to develop expertise in the nuances of disciplinary requirements for data management in order to educate their faculty and students about data best practices for their discipline
  • Articulate specific existing skills that they already possess as librarians which transfer to data services in order to begin building a toolkit of research data management skills
  • Identify campus partners in research data management in order to create an environment of research data management support for their faculty
  • Articulate the parts of a data management plan in order to describe its role as a living document within a research project
  • Apply their relevant prior knowledge of their disciplines in order to create a research data management interview plan in order to facilitate faculty engagement

Who Should Attend
This workshop is intended for liaisons who are seeking to engage with research data management for the first time, or who have a very basic knowledge of research data management. This workshop is an introductory level experience. Attendees are not expected to have previous experience with research data management. The primary audience is subject liaison librarians, secondary audience include senior library administrators, middle management and department heads, and technical services librarians and staff. Other campus partners such as Office of Research, Sponsored Programs, Technology Transfer, IRB, or campus IT may be interested but would be a tertiary audience.

    Upcoming CE Opportunity

    Save the Date for the 2017 New England Science Boot Camp!

    This year’s Science Boot Camp will be held June 14-16, 2017 on the campus of University of Massachusetts Amherst, in Amherst, Massachusetts. Science Boot Camp is a fun and affordable 2 ½ day immersion into science topics offering opportunities for librarians and library students interested in science, health sciences, and technology to learn, meet and network in a fun, laid-back atmosphere. Now in its ninth year, the New England Science Boot Camp has been hosted on multiple New England campuses and has been attended by librarians and library students from various regions of the US and beyond—and has inspired the development of other Science Boot Camps in the West, Southeast, and Canada!

    Each science session will include one scientist presenting an overview of the field and a second scientist discussing their research applications within the field.

    The topics for this year’s SBC science sessions are still TBD!
