Training kit for librarians who wish to gain confidence and understanding of research data management, based on open educational materials, covering five topics:
- Data management planning
- Organising & documenting data
- Data storage & security
- Ethics & copyright
- Data sharing
The kit uses the Research Data Mantra online course and selected exercises from the UK Data Archive. It further contains a training schedule, podcasts for short talks, presentation slides, evaluation forms, data curation profiles and reflective writing questions based on the experience of academic librarians who have taken the course.
Data Curation Profiles provide a complete framework for interviewing a researcher in any discipline about their research data and their data management practices.
