Research Data Management Needs Assessment: Survey Results

Creative Commons 'BY-NC-SA' version 4.0 license

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine’s Pacific Northwest Region (PNR) conducted a needs assessment in April/May 2017, focusing on respondents’ responses to questions about which types of assistance and programs related to data would be the most useful. The survey focused specifically on respondents in settings offering research data services. They mentioned collaboration as a highly-regarded method for keeping up with the data librarianship field, so it may be that the PNR’s support for collaborative efforts, whether through funding or another mechanism, may make an important contribution. These respondents also noted that besides subject-specific liaison work, they were very likely to work with their university’s sponsored research and/or IRB offices. If the PNR can offer suggestions for developing and sustaining these relationships, that may also be helpful.
