OCLC Research has followed developments in Research data management (RDM), and responded with a program of work examining researchers' needs and the role of university libraries in supporting researchers and assisting universities in meeting emerging compliance requirements.
The Research Data Curation Bibliography includes over 750 selected English-language articles, books, and technical reports that are useful in understanding the curation of digital research data in academic and other research institutions.
RDM is a relevant topic to keep up with at a time when researchers are increasingly required to create data management plans, provide methodological transparency, and share data.
