Creating data management research guides

Creating data management research guides
Definition: 

Creating data management research guides involve several important components. First it is essential that a library defines the needs of their users and develops an initial design of the research guide that can be tested. It is useful to perform an analysis of the initial design with other libraries to see if there are areas of the research guide that could be strengthened or adapted to improve quality. Exploring key data management institutions like the Digital Curation Centre, JISC, and the National Science Foundation will be crucial for including useful resources. Finally it would be fruitful to discuss your research guide with colleagues, and other librarians who have already created data management research guides. This effort will help to fill in any gaps that may have been missed in the initial phases of design.
