A Selective Review of Literature on Research Data Management in Academic Libraries
The present paper dwells on Research Data Management (RDM), its need, importance, the behaviour of the researchers in different disciplines towards data sharing and the role of libraries in extending data management services. The policies of publishers and funding bodies for sharing research data have also been described. It underlines that the library professionals should have a comprehensive understanding of the emerging issues, trends and challenges about the research data management to deploy appropriate services for the researchers. It highlights various resources on research data management, which may serve as guidelines for library professionals and researchers. The study will prove beneficial to library professionals and inspire them to extend RDM services in their organisations The paper concludes by advocating that the library professionals must update and upskill themselves with new trends, tools and techniques to provide RDM services. They should sensitise researchers to make their datasets accessible for reuse and sharing.
