This is the web page for the Irish National RDA Node. We are delighted that the National Library of Ireland is the Irish National RDA Node, which means that the National Library of Ireland is responsible for the support and promotion of RDA activities in Ireland. Please visit www.nli.ie to learn more about the National Library of Ireland.
We work very closely with the Digital Repository of Ireland (www.dri.ie ) who are a partner in the current RDA EU grant, and a leader in the area of Research Data Management particularly in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
We co-organised the third RDA Plenary meeting in Dublin in 2014, and continue to promote RDA in Ireland and also abroad. This working area connects researchers working with research data in Ireland, and enables them to interconnect with broader RDA activities through e.g. RDA Working and Interest Groups. We are happy to engage with researchers, research communities and private sector actors, regarding getting involved in RDA, and testing and adopting RDA outputs and recommendations. We have a particular focus on library, archives and digital humanities activities.

The Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) and the National Library of Ireland (NLI) collaborated on the production of a suite of short educational videos on topics relating to digital cultural heritage, the research data lifecycle, Open Science, and the FAIR data principles of findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability.
The full suite of videos is available in the RDA Educational Videos Showcase on the DRI Vimeo channel https://vimeo.com/showcase/9687388
|RDA Ireland Spotlight Interviews|
Implementing good research data management practices and Open Science guidelines requires effort at grass-roots, engaging researchers and research performing organisations but also at national level, policy makers working with funders and key organisations informing these policies.
To better understand the context and developments in Ireland, we have reached out to a series of organisations that have established themselves as drivers for the research data management, Open Science and Open Access movements. They have talked to us about the work at their own organisational levels, the challenges faced and how practical implementations were made possible. They shared lessons learned and have also helped us to gain a wider perspective on how the Irish contributions fit in the bigger picture at European and international levels.
