Joint OpenAIRE/LIBER Workshop : ‘Dealing with Data: What’s the Role for the Library’. 28 May, Gent, Belgium Registration now open. This is a pre-ELAG workshop.

In the same week that the Research Data Alliance Plenary identified that skill-sets for research data management are in short supply, it seems timely to announce a workshop to explore where the library and research institution sit in relation to supporting research data management, and what future expectations for libraries might be.

The library and research institution are having to understand their role within this changing environment, and define the necessary support mechanisms. OpenAIRE supports a range of stakeholders, namely librarians and researchers in depositing, searching as well as linking research output. LIBER supports libraries in making the transformation and acquiring an active role in evolving areas such as research data management and scientific information infrastructures.

Expert speakers will cover issues such as the data life-cycle, data citation, data publication, tools, and how research institutions can support their researchers in data management. In addition, a number of scientists will present their views on how  they  use, share, and link research data within different domains. The day will close with a panel session, supported by members of the LIBER Steering Committee “Scholarly Communication and Research Infrastructure” which will explore future skill-sets for librarians.
