Comments

Librarians and information technology professionals around Australia are participating in ANDS‐funded data management projects aimed at building infrastructure and services to enable Australian research data to be discoverable and accessible. The Roundtable will explore local experience in implementing ANDS‐funded research data management projects with a panel of speakers from the Australian National Data Service (Mathew Wyatt), Edith Cowan University Library (Julia Gross), the University of Western Australia Library (Toby Burrows) and Curtin University, Division of Information Technology Services (Salim Taleb).

The seminar will be of interest to anyone interested in the preservation and management of research data.

Abstract

The Australian National Data Service (ANDS) (http://ands.org.au/index.html) provides funding to foster partnerships and build infrastructure to enable better local data management in Australian universities and research institutions. Begun in 2008, ANDS has received $72 million of Commonwealth funding. ANDS aims to establish infrastructure and services for an Australian research data commons in which research data with enduring value and the potential for reuse, is preserved and managed for continuing accessibility.
