We’ve added links to DataBib, a registry of repositories for research data. DataBib is a collaboration between Purdue and Penn State, and the registry describes and links to hundreds of data repositories. Some repositories accept data submissions in particular disciplines, so if you’re looking for an appropriate place for your data, DataBib may help you find repositories in your field. More info on DataBib at their website: http://databib.org
The DataRes Project is conducting a survey on the role of university libraries in supporting the data management needs of researchers. The survey runs through Monday, April 9.
The survey, which should take 15-minute online survey to complete, is available at this website: <http://bit.ly/y2TZoU>. For more information on DataRes, visit their website at <http://datamanagement.unt.edu>.
DataRes is seeking the input of a wide variety of stakeholders, and your participation will help shape recommendations for the future of data management in research libraries.
The DataRes Project is being conducted by the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR), the University of North Texas Libraries, and the UNT College of Information. Funded by a Laura Bush 21st Century Librarians grant from the IMLS, we are investigating how the library and information science profession can best respond to emerging needs of research data management in universities.
