Managing Research Data: a pilot study in Health and Life Sciences

Reskilling for Research Data Management : a workshop for academic librarians

Posted by Liz Holliday | 0 Comments

The UWE JISC funded project in the MRD2 Programme is holding a day event : Reskilling for RDM : a workshop for Academic Librarians.

A key element of the UWE project is to share our experience and deliverables with the wider HE communities, with a particular focus on the Library community. The UWE project will look at how Librarians can work alongside researchers to develop their skills and knowledge. We have invited projects from the JISC MRD Train to share their tools that enable skills development for librarians.
This event will be of value to Librarians who liaise with researchers as well as those who support research output repositories, and those who provide the infrastructure of the scholarly communication processes through collections and e-resources management.

The event is free of charge to all attendees. Situated close to rail and motorway links, the University of the West of England is accessible from all parts of the UK.

Full details about the day are available here as is a booking form

We have been working on finalising our propsals and recommendations for the administrative processes strand of our project. Our objective was  to develop suitable processes, infrastructure and guidance in keeping with the culture and administrative processes of the university and which fulfill the needs of UWE researchers.

The process proposals and recommendations were presented to and favourably received by the project steering group meeting on 24th October. We will now move on to gaining full UWE acceptance which requires piloting the proposals through the meetings of several research committees.

We have begun to develop our online guidance for researchers basing this on our evaluation of the Incremental, DATUM for health and MANTRA guidance and training outputs.
