Birgit Schmidt: RDA for Libraries from an International Perspective

  1. 1. RDA FOR LIBRARIES FROM AN INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE Dr Birgit Schmidt Göttingen State and University Library Dublin, 8 September 2017 1
  2. 2. Many reasons why libraries engage with research data • Research data are core to the records of science. • Data management is not the sole responsibility of researchers. • Support by information professionals is essential for securing long-term access and reuse. Source: http://d7.library.gatech.edu/research-data/home A National Approach to Open Research Data in Ireland, 8 September 2017 2
  3. 3. Why engage in RDA • International communities of practice build across professions (research, data centres, libraries, publishers, etc.) • Problem-oriented approach targeting core data management challenges • Exchange and feedback on approaches and standards, inspiration & opportunities for collaboration A National Approach to Open Research Data in Ireland, 8 September 2017 3
  4. 4. Example activities & outcomes Interest groups (IG) work on specific challenges, e.g. repository platforms & certification, metadata, vocabularies, PIDs, data publishing, data discovery, education and training, domain repositories, long tail data, disciplinary topics, ethics and social aspects, legal interoperability, etc. Recently proposed, e.g. Active Data Management Plans IG Outcomes are typically pushing for • new data standards or harmonization of existing standards, • greater data sharing, exchange, interoperability, (re-)usability & discoverability, • better management, stewardship & preservation of research data. >> Many of these activities are crucial for making data FAIR A National Approach to Open Research Data in Ireland, 8 September 2017 4
  5. 5. Establishing trust in repositories „Data sharing standards incentivize authors to make data available in trusted repositories“ (Nosek et al., 2015). Source (incl. picture): Nosek, B.

  9. 9. Libraries for Research Data (L4RD) Interest Group • Co-chairs: Michael Witt, Andi Ogier, Birgit Schmidt (former co-chairs: Kathleen Shearer, Wolfram Horstmann) • 330+ members • Example outputs – Briefing paper on „How to maximize research data skills in libraries“ – 23 Things Libraries for Research Data • Topics at P10: realities of RDM (OCLC report), panel on assessment of research data services, library carpentry A National Approach to Open Research Data in Ireland, 8 September 2017 9
  10. 10. L4RD: Suggestions by members for further investigation • Research data services: organizational models (incl. consortia, shared infrastructure), scalability, assessment • Institutional policies: library role in policy development/compliances, primary role of libraries vs. those of other units • Adoption of RDA outputs: Adoption of outputs from other RDA groups, outreach to faculty about RDA outputs • Knowledge transfer: anything from the library community that might be useful & applicabel to the research community (e.g. archiving tools) • Data management: data collection development policies, user behaviour, discoverability (incl by non-specialists), archiving (what to keep, best practices), data mgt. flows, research data metrics • Training, skilling of librarians, researchers and graduate students • Engaging with researchers: What frameworks, methods, processes and technologies do various libraries utilise to engage with researchers and research groups A National Approach to Open Research Data in Ireland, 8 September 2017 10

  20. 20. EOSC catalogue of services EOSC will provide a comprehensive and evolving set of services supporting an open science-friendly knowledge production lifecycle. Such EOSC services will include: scientific instruments; data; applications, workflows, software; storage, compute and network connectivity; written knowledge (e.g. scientific publications, educational and training resources); services for enabling federated access, like federated identity service provisioning, authentication, authorization, and accounting; collaborative services enabling the sharing, use and reuse of digital capabilities.

  21. 21. EGDF: EOSC Governance Development Framework The main challenge of establishing the EOSC is how to construct a framework allowing strong and diverse stakeholders to work together. EOSC pilot will design and trial a stakeholder- driven governance framework with the involvement of all stakeholders. This will then shape and oversee future development of the European Open Science Cloud. A National Approach to Open Research Data in Ireland, 8 September 2017 21
