Video of Ricky Erway's university-wide data policy planning presentation at CNI Fall Meeting available
A video is available of the Institutional Research Data Management: Policies, Planning, Services & Surveys project briefing from the CNI Fall 2013 Membership Meeting that features discussion of university-wide data policy planning by OCLC Research Senior Program Officer Ricky Erway, as well as a presentation by David Fearon (Johns Hopkins U.), and Andrew Sallans (Center for Open Science) on a survey and report about research data management services offered by ARL-member research libraries. Ricky's slides are also available for download (.pptx: 3.3MB/20 slides) or viewing on SlideShare.
In her presentation, Ricky suggests that universities adapt a proactive approach in developing a high-level policy for responsible data planning and management. She highlights the benefits and identifies the various university stakeholders (Office of Research, Research Compliance Office, information technology, academic departments, the researchers, and the library) and the concerns they bring to the table. In addition, she suggests that the conversations among the stakeholders address ownership, selection, retention periods, ethical considerations, openness, costs, preservation, access, and alternatives to local data management. This presentation is based on Ricky's recent report, Starting the Conversation: University-wide Research Data Management Policy, which is freely available online.
