UK research data management site visits
During July 2008 I co-presented with Sarah Colley at the sixth World Archaeological Congress and visited a number of research data management facilities within the UK. The visits were intended to foster linkages and gather information to inform Library involvement in data management services.
This report provides information about these activities and comprises
- one page summary of general and library/archive-specific issues
- background information regarding data management issues in higher education
- areas of service development of likely interest to the Library
- site visits
- conference presentation
- links and further reading
Thanks to the University Library for funding the trip and particular thanks for the good-will of the agencies I visited.
