Open learning materials on Research Data Management released

What is Research Data Management and why has it become a key agenda in HEIs?
How do researchers themselves view data - what is research data?
Which arguments for RDM do researchers find most convincing?
What is the role of the library and other professional services in supporting RDM?

How to support Research Data Management (RDM) has become a big issue in academic libraries. Many professionals will want to get up to speed on the topic.

JISC has funded the Sheffield iSchool with the university libraries of Leeds, Sheffield and York to create a set of learning materials on RDM.

Version 1 is now available.

This Open Educational Resource of learning materials can be used for self-supported CPD or reused under an attribution/sharealike licence for staff training within libraries or by other LIS educators.

The project team would welcome your feedback and comments!
