From point zero to point one: libraries and RDM in Europe

From point zero to point one: libraries and RDM in Europe

This short talk will give an overview of what libraries do and what can do in servitude to research data management. Based on the recent work of LIBER, it will show what european research libraries believe are able and what is left to do in collaboration with other partners. This information , together with examples from small and medium libraries, will be insightfully read to reveal other aspects of the current status, especially in infrastructures, such as storage, identification, preservation and so on. The talk will close with the wishful thinking for a solid and prospective development of RDM that will be encouraging participation and use under the FAIR trait.
