    Meeting objectives
    A recent article by Barend Mons in Nature advocated to invest 5% of research funds in ensuring data are reusable and identifies FAIR efforts as a way forward. In a relatively short period of time, the FAIR Principles have risen to an important aspect of research services for libraries to support. In this session, we will hear from a number of FAIR efforts from implementations to training programs and provide time for discussion on how FAIR can be/is applied in your community. We will also provide updates on Libraries for Research Data activities, hear from community members, with special focus on Latin American/South American libraries, and open the floor to community suggestions on topics for the Group moving forward.
    The session will provide:

    Update on projects led by the group  and invite members to provide feedback on the projects and adoption of outputs

    Update the group on recent important developments in research data management 

    Special focus on developments in libraries in Latin America 

    Allow group members to shape the scope and direction of the future work of the group
