Dramatic changes needed for research data (LIBER curation workshop)

  • Liz Lyon pointed to the many discipline-based research infrastructures that are emerging all over the place (as did Norbert Lossau, by the way, in a recent article in LIBER Quarterly). Research libraries do not seem to play much of a role in these. Why is that? Because of their local rather than disciplinary orientation? Liz Lyon cited her own article on roles and responsibilities with regard to research data in the current issue of the International Journal of Digital Curation. A survey showed that researchers expect “leadership” from research librarians, because, as Liz said, “Researchers do not know what is good practice with regard to their data”. Another study (Re-skilling for research, by RLUK/Mary Auckland), however, showed a disturbing lack of appropriate skills among research libraries, and, what is worse,the gap between the skills needed and the skills available in research libraries is growing at an alarming rate.
