Recommendations to SMT• Research Data Management should be a joint responsibility between the Library, ICT, R&E and the Registry.• Establish a ‘research systems’ Steering Group (RDM, Repository, etc.) which reports to RIEC.• Agree an RDM roadmap for Lincoln over two years: 2013-15.• Work with ICT to provide staff with versatile, secure, backed-up networked storage and develop a costing model for larger requests for storage.• Establish Research Services Developer post (ePrints/REF, RDM) to develop the research information environment, so as to meet researcher requirements, data legislation and funder mandates.• Undertake a cost/benefits analysis of establishing a ‘Data Scientist’ role to exploit research information environment.• Train existing Library and Research & Enterprise staff in RDM principles and practices• Undertake a longitudinal (annual) survey of research practices at Lincoln to identify need for support.
