Meeting title

From data services to research partnerships: Libraries facilitating knowledge creation

Collaborative session notes:


Short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group

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.
