Short introduction describing the activities and the scope of the group: 

Research data have become primary research assets that often require 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 reusable. The aim of this group is to building capacity in the library community for managing research data including building skills, identifying competencies, and supporting the adoption of RDM services.
