Clarifying the Roles of Libraries in Research Data Management: A Discussion Day to find Creative Solutions

The purpose of the day was to clarify the research library agenda with regard to research data management, and to establish where RLUK can add value to the process through collaborative action. The session was facilitated by Kevin Ashley, Director of the Digital Curation Centre, and took the form of a mixture of presentations and working sessions. The presentations were by David Carr of the Wellcome Trust on Why good RDM is important to the institution; Sheila Corrall of the University of Sheffield on library staff development issues, Simon Hodson of the JISC on The skills that researchers may expect librarians to have, and Martin Lewis of the University of Sheffield on Working with other institutional actors
