M25 Consortium of Academic Libraries visits the UK Data Archive

Filed under: Latest news — ckeitch @ 4:46 pm

The UK Data Archive hosted a visit from librarians and research data management experts from the M25 Consortium of Academic Libraries. They were here to find out more about the training and resources available from the UK Data Archive to support the use of the data we provide as part of the UK Data Service.

The visitors came from Anglia Ruskin University, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, University of East London and University of Roehampton.

The visit, in conjunction with the Albert Sloman Library, was very successful in informing librarians of the services available to their students and researchers. These include webinars, face-to-face training, events, data management best practice and guidance, resources and templates for use with data collection – as well as guidance on depositing data with the UK Data Archive and the importance of data citation.

Hannah Groom, Core Resources Co-ordinator at the Albert Sloman Library, said, “It was a really successful event, and helped our visitors to understand more about the Archive’s work. It gave us all a chance to share experiences and learn from each other. It’s just one of many ways we in the Library and the Archive work together across campus and more widely to encourage good practice.”
