Research data : A topic of LIS education?

  • In recent years, access to and curation of research data have become a topic of discussion in national and international think tanks and advisory groups. There are various concepts and suggestions to stimulate and improve competences in dealing with research data. In addition, semantic web technologies and Linked Open Data are raising the awareness for access to data and environments in which data can be processed, retrieved, reused and preserved. Competences in dealing with these challenges will extend the scope of work and the tasks not only of researchers but of librarians as well. In the context of a survey on digital preservation of research data in Germany, research data-related tasks have been identified and consequences for the scope of library activities and qualification needs of librarians have been suggested. Competences in collecting, describing, and processing domain-related data in connection with other activities in digital curation of research data gain in importance. LIS (Library and Information Science) curricula should cover these extended qualification needs.
