4 - Where Are We Now?: Current Library Data Support Services

Sunday, May 28
3:50 PM - 4:05 PM
Room: 607

Objectives: Many biomedical libraries’ initial data-related services focused on providing support to researchers creating data management plans in response to funder requirements. In the 5+ years since the NSF data management plan mandate, how have data services evolved? This paper will discuss how biomedical libraries are currently serving both individual researcher’s and the research community’s data support needs.

Methods: The goal of this study is to describe the provision of data-related services to researchers by exploring current and planned services provided by biomedical academic libraries. An interview approach was utilized to capture data-related services provided by libraries, and to illustrate scenarios that might assist with strategic planning of new services. Services to individual researchers (e.g. one-on-one consultations) as well as the research community were examined. Emphasis was placed on examining library involvement throughout the research lifecycle, so that any variety in the services provided by biomedical libraries could be described. In-depth user stories were collected to further illustrate the impact of libraries through data-related services. Results may provide insight as to whether there are certain services shared by a majority of libraries, or if data support services are dependent on the organizations and population served, or other factors.
