This presentation discusses data management within the context of the University of Otago. It follows up on the Library’s Biodiversity Data Management Project that ended in mid 2009 and was the theme of a presentation at PRDLA 2008. “One year after” will report the final outcomes of the project and provide a profile on other digital and e-research initiatives at the University of Otago in which the Library is participating.
As the newest of the ten-campus UC library system, the UC Merced Library is uniquely positioned to work with faculty and researchers to realize their visions of digital scholarship and to develop plans for long-term management of the digital assets they are creating. The library has collaborated with a number of UC Merced faculty on digital initiatives, which present a snapshot of the interests and needs of today’s scholars. This presentation will provide an on-the-ground look at the needs and approach to research data curation at UC Merced, as well as a birds-eye view, environmental scan of current data curation efforts.
