  8. 8. Purdue University Libraries – How it began • Dean of Libraries (James Mullins) talked to 79 departments when he joined in 2004 • He asked liaison librarians to start talking to researchers about data management not as a service yet but as research project first • Re-appointed an existing librarian as the Interdisciplinary Research Librarian • Aligning librarian job titles with key university functions eg. IRL ‘renamed’ as Associate Dean for Research; Associate Dean for Academic Affairs instead of ‘user services’ • Volunteer working group formed soon after • Data and Management Specialists (‘DAM Group’) formalised in early 2014 • Associate Dean of Research in the Library (Scott) seconded (half of his pay from Research Office) half-time to Research Office
