Scoping and Developing Institutional Data Services: The Data Libraries of 2020

Presenter 1
Luis Martinez-Uribe
University of Oxford, Oxford e-Research Centre

Research methods are experiencing a revolution due to the emergence of infrastructure and tools that empower scholars to conduct research in novel ways. This brings an increase production of digital research data that has triggered the alarms from research funders and academic institutions. Many research funders in the UK require data produced as part of the research process to be made available on request and expect data management plans to be included with funding applications. Although the UK is rich in domain specific national data services, many disciplines do not have the support and infrastructure required for data collection, access and preservation. Therefore, academic institutions need to help their researchers comply with funding requirements as well as to provide them with the means to allow them to participate in a new data centric research world. Data libraries are great examples of institutional data support and now their services need to evolve to serve the future needs of scholars. This presentation will explore these issues in addition to describe the work carried out in Oxford to scope the requirements for services to manage and curate research data as well as to develop some of these services.
