Working with Research Partners to Coordinate Domain-Specific Data Services (Recording)

Librarians work with academic departments, research labs, information technology units, and other communities to provide data services. Once you have a partner, how can you coordinate services to help them develop research data practices that best serve their domain?

Coordinating services creates opportunities to implement domain-specific practices. Bringing together your library, archives, research computing, and academic departments enable solutions to challenges in the organization, sharing, and reproducibility of research data.

You’ll learn lessons from one medical school’s coordinated domain-specific research data management solutions that you can apply in your setting. You’ll see, for example, how a lab’s move to an electronic lab notebook platform required coordinated efforts among the academic department, tech support, and the library.

You’ll explore service examples, identify scientific research data challenges, and leave with checklists you can tailor to your community.

This is a required core course for Level II of the Data Services Specialization.
