UT SIS Team Publishes ACRL White Paper

UT SIS Team Publishes ACRL White Paper | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it
Tennessee Library Association's insight:

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville's Chancellors Professor Carol Tenopir along with Associate Professor Suzie Allard and doctoral student Ben Birch have published a comprehensive white paper, Academic Libraries and Research Data Services:  Current Practices and Plans for the Future.  This research was conducted in conjunction with the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) a division of the American Library Association (ALA). 

 

The publication can be viewed at http://www.ala.org/acrl/sites/ala.org.acrl/files/content/publications/whitepapers/Tenopir_Birch_Allard.pdf .

 

The white paper explores how academic libraries are addressing providing the services and resources for data-intensive research.  The research suggests that libraries will be taking a more active and visible role in all steps of the research data lifecycle from the research data management plans, through data archiving, curation and preservation.
