Archives and Records Professionals for Research Data IG


Group details

Elise Dunham, Rebecca Grant, Laura Molloy, Sarah Ramdeen
Secretariat Liaison: 
Timea Biro
TAB Liaison: 
Carole Palmer
Case Statement: 

The objective of this group is to explore the areas where the principles and practices in the information disciplines of archives, records management, and research data curation overlap and where they diverge. Examining alignments in theoretical frameworks, practical implementations, and goals among these information disciplines and determining areas where practitioners across them can learn from each other could lead to the development of a vibrant community of information professionals working across different domains.

The group has met for the first time during the RDA 6th Plenary meeting in Paris, September 2015.
