Ethical and social issues with respect to data archiving, sharing, and reuse cut across many of the technical and policy work of the rest of the RDA.  Such issues are complementary to but separate from legal and regulatory aspects, since technology usually outpaces law and law itself is underpinned by ethical agreements and social contracts.

Topics of interest include the kinds/types of data that can be archived and reused and under what circumstances; education of researchers, research respondents, administrators, ethics bodies; gray and difficult areas of research that create new challenges for data management  ("dangerous data", legacy data, retrospective analyses, medical humanities, wellness/lifestyle data); developing policies and practices that encourage appropriate data sharing yet protect researchers and their research respondents; obligations to and impacts on families, communities, and societies; the ethics of reuse.

Webinar - Introducing D-CRAFT: A Toolkit for Assessing Reuse of Digital Objects in Your Collections

by Ayla Kenfield

Digital libraries are increasingly challenged with the task of assessing reuse of digital objects in their collections. This can be a complex and time-consuming process, and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. D-CRAFT is a new toolkit that can help digital library practitioners assess reuse of digital objects in their collections. D-CRAFT includes tools, methods, recommended practices, explanatory videos, and tutorials that can help you streamline the reuse assessment process and make it more efficient.
