Transcript of "Va sla nov 15 final"

  1. 1. Getting Started with Data in Your Library Margaret Henderson Director, Research Data Management VCU Libraries
  2. 2. Research Data means recorded information, regardless of form or the media in which it may be recorded, which constitute the original observations and methods of a study and the analyses of these original data that are necessary for reconstruction and evaluation of the Report(s) of a study made by one or more Investigators. Research Data also includes all such recorded information gathered in anticipation of a Report. Research Data differ among disciplines. The term may include but is not limited to technical information, computer software, laboratory and other notebooks, printouts, worksheets, other media, survey, memoranda, evaluations, notes, databases, clinical case history records, study protocols, statistics, findings, conclusions, samples, physical collections, other supporting materials created or gathered in the course of the Research, Tangible Research Property, unique Research resources such as synthetic compounds, organisms, cell lines, viruses, cell products, cloned DNA as well as genetic sequences and mapping information, crystallographic coordinates, plants, animals and spectroscopic data, and other compilations formed by selecting and assembling preexisting materials in a unique way.
