Abstract:Libraries are uniquely qualified to by mission to manage, curate, publish, and make discoverable research data, through the use of organizing principles, metadata and provenance information, and the systems and services that support these functions. Although libraries provide critical support services and consultation with researchers, the process of research data stewardship also depends on the expertise of other professionals who contribute information storage and architecture, high performance computing, data manipulation and visualization, and domain knowledge to the research data curation, preservation, and access enterprise in the academic setting. Briefly stated, libraries are at the heart of research data stewardship, but they cannot do it successfully on their own. Illinois’ peers are already significantly advanced in developing and offering eResearch services that help researchers to create, acquire, manage, utilize, preserve, and publish research data. The Library has begun to develop public-facing programs and services, but it requires internal change, more targeted personnel coverage, better, more effective internal and public-facing communication, and support for training and re-tooling of Library professionals in order to successfully support research data services.
