LIBER Webinar: Finding and Reusing Research Data
15 March 2019
Sharing research data is a practice that is increasingly encouraged by funders, institutions, and research communities. In this webinar, on 11 April at 14.00 Kathleen Gregory (DANS) presents an overview of recent research investigating how researchers and librarians engage in practices of finding, understanding and reusing research data.
She also provides tips for finding research data and an opportunity for attendees to consider what this research means for developing services at their own organizations.
Policies, tools and training programmes are being developed to assist researchers and data providers to make data available in a way that optimizes data findability, accessibility, interoperability and reusability (i.e. according to the FAIR principles). One of the promises driving both data sharing and policy development is that shared data can and will be discovered and reused; but are users (researchers, librarians, students) discovering this data? And if they are finding them, (how) are they reusing them?
