23 things for Research Data - LIBER webinar 23 Feb 2017


Published on

Want practical tips and resources to improve your management of research data? On 23 February 2017 this free LIBER webinar focused on the 23 Things list: a set of free, online resources and tools that you can immediately use to change how you manage research data.
Developed in August 2015 by librarians engaged in the Research Data Alliance (RDA), the 23 Things program was created as a training resource for librarians, It has been translated into 11 languages and covers topics related to research data such as data management plans, data literacy, metadata, data citation, data licensing and privacy, data repositories, and communities of practice.
In March 2016, the concept was expanded into a 23-week, national training and community-building program led by the Australian National Data Service. The program was an immediate success. Over 1,200 people participated in the launch webinar and 50 local community groups were formed (in person or virtually), to learn a new ‘thing’ to improve their research data practice.
This webinar explored the content of both the 23 Things resource from RDA, and introduced the in-depth, 23-week training program as an opportunity for professional development and wider adoption and evaluation.
The webinar was organised by LIBER's Working Group on Scientific Information Infrastructures and featured two guests: -- Michael Witt, Associate Professor of Library Science & Head, Distributed Data Curation Center, Purdue University, USA -- Natasha Simons, Senior Research Data Management Specialist, Australian National Data Service, Australia

  21. 21. What did participants think? I liked the range of resources e.g. videos, documents and data records covering different discipline areas. Staff are more eager to engage researchers in conversation now. My confidence to discuss research data management with experts, students and data librarians has grown - thank you!
  22. 22. What did managers think? “New and augmented skills of librarians will provide future benefit to the library as a whole” Future plans include: • Expand the level of library staff participation in research data management • Continue supporting professional opportunities in research data management for library staff e.g. reuse and re-purpose the 23T materials
  23. 23. Overall shift in the community
