Learn more about Research Data Management (RDM) – funder policies, repositories, monitoring, and more.


Research Data Management (RDM) is a growing field within libraries that has recently accelerated due to new federal data sharing guidelines. There is an increased need for library workers to better understand what researchers are experiencing, including barriers to entry and administrative overload, as they navigate the research lifecycle from grant application to data deposit, preservation, and reuse.

Join us for an open conversation with a data repository expert/GREI (NIH-backed Generalist Repository Ecosystem Initiative) member and a former library technologist as we discuss the research lifecycle from the perspective of the researcher – taking a walk in their shoes and exploring opportunities libraries have to support them at critical intersections on the path to success.

This webinar will follow the researcher lifecycle via a checklist format, with anecdotes, examples, and use cases from conversations with library workers, researchers, ethics officers, the NIH, and Data Repository technologists. Audience participation in the conversation will be encouraged.

Who should attend?

  • Library workers and leaders interested in data management, institutional and data repositories, scholarly communication, and RDM strategy
