RDMRose to participate in LIRG event with UEL's TRaD

LIRG Event: Research Data Management – challenges and opportunities for libraries

The impact of “Big Data” on our working lives cannot be ignored…..

The management of research data is increasingly being recognised as a responsibility of all higher education institutions, and the evidence suggests that libraries could and in many cases already are playing a leading role in supporting RDM.

This event will discuss the wider issues of research data management for the profession, how the workforce can be developed to deal with the challenges it represents and to provide an introduction to the learning materials that are now available and how they can be reused and maintained by the community as a collective resource.

The event is being organised by LIRG, the Library and Information Research Group, and will include highlights from two JISC projects, RDMRose and TrAd. Join us at the session to find out more on this expanding area and help shape the debate.
