Research Data Alliance
Session Leader: Inna Kouper
The Research Data Alliance (RDA, https://rd-alliance.org) is an international initiative envisioned to provide a forum for working on, supporting, and promoting data exchanges. Come to this BoF session to discuss opportunities for librarians to make a bigger impact by contributing to one of the RDA working and interest groups. Some of the questions we’ll address:
- How can library communities leverage RDA and make a wider impact (e.g., by engaging researchers, developing tools, promoting best practices)?
- What would library communities want/need from other stakeholders in data exchanges (e.g., researchers, software developers, funders, etc.)?
- What are the areas/items of immediate and/or long-term action?
Bring all your data-related ideas, questions and concerns to this session.
