New OCLC research report: Building RDM capacity through strategic library collaboration

OCLC Research has published the new report Building Research Data Management Capacity: Case Studies in Strategic Library Collaboration, which provides actionable recommendations based on real-world case studies that libraries can apply to make their own collaborations successful and sustainable.

Research data management is an increasingly vital strategic interest for academic libraries, and many collaborate with other libraries to scale resources and meet institutional RDM needs. Library collaboration is a strategic decision that can transform your institution’s RDM capabilities, but successful and sustainable collaboration is not guaranteed and requires careful consideration.  

The report shares experiences and insights from the Texas Data Repository, Portage Network, and Data Curation Network to illuminate the challenges, opportunities, and considerations of building RDM service capacity through collaboration.
