Objectives

 

The objective of this group is to provide a welcoming space for archivists and records management professionals within RDA to share knowledge and explore issues related to research data that arise in their professional activities.  We explore the areas where the principles and practices in the information disciplines of archives, records management, and research data curation overlap and where they diverge.  Examining alignments in theoretical frameworks, practical implementations, and goals among these information disciplines, we determine areas where practitioners across them can learn from each other in ways that can lead to the development of a vibrant community of information professionals working across different domains.

 

We are determined to ensure that the large body of existing knowledge from the archives and records management spheres, much of which is pertinent to practical applications of research data management, including making and keeping data FAIR, has a presence within the RDA landscape.

Proposed changes to our Archives and Records Professionals IG

by Rebecca Taylor-Grant

Dear all, Many thanks for participating in the Archives and Records Professionals for Research Data IG. As you are aware, the group has been rather quiet over the past while as the co-chairs have not had the capacity to be more active in their roles. Please find below a proposal on how we can reinvigorate the work of the group. We'd appreciate any comments or feedback you have by next Wednesday, December 6th - please feel free to share comments on the list or send them to the co-chairs directly.
