Event description

Description

All over the world universities and libraries have started the task of developing research data services. Ideally such initiatives aim to result in a complete service portfolio covering the entire research lifecycle: Support in writing proposals and data management plans, repository infrastructures for the storage of data, support in publishing data, assignment of persistent identifiers, lecturing in data management, etc. This broad scope means that such services are often seen as requiring a joint effort from from university, library, IT center, faculties and other stakeholders.

Currently nowhere in the world such a complete support scenario has been established. It is timely for actors in the various dimensions of such initiatives internationally to share their experiences, research and insights.
In this symposium we will explore the topic and hear research papers, practice papers and lightening talks from organisations that have started to offer such services in whole or in part on their campus. The symposium will provide a forum for universities and libraries to share their experience and to learn from each other.

The symposium will take place in Göttingen from 18-20 March 2018: it is a collaboration between the University of Göttingen and CODATA and is intended as a precursor event to the RDA plenary meeting in Berlin on 21-23 March 2018.
