Data value increases as it is interconnected, networked, shared, used and reused. A deluge of scientific and other research data presents a great opportunity for libraries, archives and other information organisations to grow their roles. This subject focuses on research data management which is an increasingly important set of skills in universities, scientific, research and other organisations. There are many information management activities related to data, for example, establishing plans for data selection, migration of data to new platforms, ensuring compliance with policies and standards, creating finding aids for multiple user communities, and developing databases and technologies to support data creation, preservation, discovery, and reuse. This subject will provide information managers with the background to provide leadership in research data management.
