Breaking News: Authors Alisa Surkis (@asurkis) and Kevin Read (@ReadKev) will join us during the discussion! 

We're having a Journal Club discussion Thursday! The article I selected is:

Surkis A, Read K. Research data management. J Med Libr Assoc. 2015 Jul;103(3):154-6. doi: 10.3163/1536-5050.103.3.011. PubMed PMID: 26213510; PubMed Central PMCID: PMC4511058. Available at:

There’s a lot to consider and discuss in just a few pages!

Researchers are starting to care about data and data collection, especially since funding could be reliant on a data management plan. Should libraries care about data management? What can libraries do to get started? Have you started to support data management within your institution? Are there any challenges you’ve come across and advice you can share with others?
