Case Statement: 
IG Established
 

Research Data have become a primary research asset that often requires continued access in the dynamic environment of mobile researchers, volatile repositories, transient products and short-lived standards. Libraries have looked after written research assets for centuries and now tackle the challenge of adapting their function to making data reliably accessible and re-usable.

Endorsed Outputs

  • 23 Things: Libraries For Research Data - overview of practical, free, online resources and tools that you can begin using today to incorporate research data management into your practice of librarianship. The document is available in 12 languages.
