DataCite and Campus Data Services
Paul Bracke, Associate Dean for Digital Programs and Information Services, Purdue University
Research libraries are increasingly interested in developing data services for their campuses. There are many perspectives, however, on how to develop services that are responsive to the many needs of scientists; sensitive to the concerns of scientists who are not always accustomed to sharing their data; and that are attractive to campus administrators. This presentation will discuss the development of campus-based data services programs, the centrality of data citation to these efforts, and the ways in which engagement with DataCite can enhance local programs.
