Title: At the watershed: Preparing for research data management and stewardship at the University of Minnesota Libraries
Author(s): Delserone, Leslie M.
Subject(s): Institutional repositories Data curation Cyberinfrastructure
Abstract: Like many research universities, the University of Minnesota (UMN), and its Libraries, attempts to understand the nature and intensity of data produced by its researchers, and address the management and stewardship of its institutional research output. The recent activities of the Libraries, in support of and in conjunction with campus-wide efforts, illustrate a set of approaches that show the Libraries to be at the watershed, integrated into and contributing leadership to the growing river of campus-wide exploration and planning of cyberinfrastructure needs. This brief article highlights the hiring of the “science librarian cohort,” the Libraries’ study concerning the needs and behaviors of scientific researchers, the implementation of the University Digital Conservancy, the Libraries’ involvement in the UMN’s Research Cyberinfrastructure Alliance, and its initiation of the e-Science and Data Services Collaborative.
