“Building Your Research Data Management Toolkit” Off-RoadShow Workshop Coming Up August 3-4

Don’t miss ACRL’s upcoming virtual Off-RoadShow workshop, Building Your Research Data Management Toolkit: Integrating RDM into Your Liaison Work! This online workshop takes place across two consecutive half-days, August 3-4, from 12:00-4:00pm CT each day.

Research data management has emerged as a need among academic researchers and liaisons are building skills in response. This online workshop will assist liaisons to identify their existing skills and mindsets that transfer to research data management services, and then create a learning plan for the RDM specific knowledge needed to serve their subject disciplines. Tools, hints, and tricks will be shared that facilitate partnerships on campus with disciplinary faculty and with other RDM service providers. Presenters will use interactive experiences to facilitate learning.

This online workshop is an introductory level experience intended for liaisons who are seeking to engage with research data management for the first time, or who have a very basic knowledge of research data management. Attendees are not expected to have previous experience with research data management.
