IFLA IT Open webinar series - Library Research Data Management Services: where are we now?

Research data management - Data services in academic libraries


19 Juli 2021




There is no doubt that data is an imperative in conducting research towards the creation of new knowledge and science. Therefore, good research data management practices forms part of the research process ensuring validity and reliability of research data. As we know, it is a requirement by many publishers and funders these days to share the research data. Since academic libraries play a vital role in supporting the pillars of their parent universities, the uptake of research data management services in response to supporting research trends has emerged.

Please join us in presentations by Dr. Edmund Balnaves, a director at Prosentient Systems (Pty)Ltd in Australia, who will be highlighting some current best practices in academic library research data management services with special reference to various RDM systems, followed by a presentation reflecting on library research data services by Dr Lynn Kleinveldt, a lecturer at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology in South Africa. These presentations will lead to an open discussion on where we are and where we are heading with library RDM services, facilitated by François-Xavier Boffy from Claude Bernard University in Lyon, France . 

This session will be of interest to librarians and academics who wish to understand more about Research Data Management practices.
