Demystifying Research Data: don’t be scared be prepared

Dorothy Byatt

I thoroughly enjoyed this JIBS/RLUK joint event focussing on how research data may impact on the role and remit of librarians in the not too distant future, if it hasn’t already.  It was good to be able to hear how others are approaching issues associated with research data as well as get an opportunity to tell them about the work we have done so far as part of the DataPool project.
