The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) just published a new report that discusses, among other things, the DataRes project at the University of North Texas.
This report examines how research institutions are responding to data management requirements of the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and other federal agencies. It also considers what role, if any, academic libraries and the library and information science profession should have in supporting researchers’ data management needs.
I also strongly recommend reading Spencer Keralis`blog entry on his reflection at the end of the two-year grant that funded DataRes. It is a bitter-sweet piece on the lack of monetary resources to support libraries that embark on RDM.
