  28. Why Joint Data Services? Building new services is hard! •

    Landscape is changing quickly • Limited local resources • Benefit from shared energy + interest Makes sense to share resources and knowledge • Some projects successful, some less so • Important thing is that we’re trying to find ways forward

  33. Lessons Learned No top-down mandate for this! • Partnership can

    work on a project-by-project basis - personal relationships matter • Difficult when providing data support is so local, though • Limited local resources (people, technology, etc.) How do we transition from low-hanging fruit on each campus to informal partnership to formal partnership?
  34. Future Projects Training liaison librarians Teaching materials Collecting data •

    Collection development policy (file formats, size limitations, curation) • Metadata recommendations • Licensing standards • DOIs / DataCite Formalize relationship on System-level? State-level? Sharing information!
