Session Title

Getting Started With Research Data in Your Repository

Presenter Information

Dave Stout, bepress

Description

Interested in supporting data in your library? Institutional repositories can be a great solution for meeting most faculty and student needs around data, but when it comes to getting started, the questions can be daunting. What does data look like? What resources do you need to build a successful program? How can you reach out to faculty members who work with data? Will you have the technical and storage capacity to meet the needs of your community? This presentation will address some of these basic questions and give you tools to start taking the first steps towards building a data program on your campus. Over the last year, bepress has been working on a data initiative with our customers, and we’ll share what we’ve learned. We’ll provide an overview of the types of data generated by researchers, discuss strategies for outreach and developing library data policies, show you how to find the data that’s the best fit for the repository, and present a set of best practices for preparing and showcasing data.
