Gave a short talk, Librarians are the dream unconcious of the research enterprise (as are all other support staff) as part of the opening panel, The Canadian RDM Landscape. Other panelists included: Jonathan Dewar, Executive Director, First Nations Information Governance Centre (FNIGC); Jeremy Geelen, Senior Advisor/Science Policy Branch CIHR; Kevin Fitzgibbons, Executive Director, Corporate Planning and Policy Division, NSERC; Matthew Lucas, Executive Director, Corporate Strategy and Performance, SSHRC; James Doiron, Portage RDM Training Expert, & RDM Services Coordinator, University of Alberta Libraries
This talk was part of a larger CARL Portage train-the trainer day that I coordinated for the uOttawa Library. The fourth in a series of annual days dedicated to research data management (RDM) awareness-raising and training. This year we focus on upskilling Librarians, research facilitators, faculty IT representatives and research administrators and support staff. Topics covered are: Tri-Council policy and impact on researchers, RDM best practices, how to do a data management consult, how and why to do data deposit.
