Collaboration is a key strategy for libraries to build capacity, innovate, and share knowledge. This is particularly true in emerging service areas like research data management (RDM) where libraries may struggle to scale resources and meet institutional needs.

This presentation will highlight key findings from recent OCLC Research efforts that explore library collaboration, with a focus on the role of multi-institutional collaborations as a strategy for building RDM capacity. Presenters will share lessons learned from in-depth case studies of the Texas Data Repository, Portage Network, and Data Curation Network,

The presentation will discuss findings from the OCLC Research report Building Research Data Management Capacity: Case Studies in Strategic Library Collaboration, and address ways that libraries can engage in strategic collaboration across campus and institutions.

This webinar will be of interest to library leaders, RDM practitioners, and other institutional stakeholders..

All affiliates of OCLC Research Library Partnership organizations are invited to participate.
