Supporting Research Data Management at ECDL 2010

Chris Rusbridge | 06 September 2010

Liz Lyon, Director of UKOLN and Associate Director, Digital Curation Centre,
and her DCC colleague Sarah Jones will facilitate the panel on Developing Services to Support Research
Data Management and Sharing
during ECDL 2010 in Glasgow. The subject of the panel will be the current gap between the readiness of the current information environment to deal with large amounts of heterogeneous data and the disposition of academics in research institutions to update their practices
of data management and curation. The panel will focus on this gap between digital library systems and researchers’ current practice in managing data and will explore appropriate services that can help to bridge it.
