Abstract

Library Services and research data support at King’s College London – profiling the research data management librarian

In this paper I explore the roles and responsibilities of the research data librarian at King’s College London and outline the skills, competences and knowledge needed to carry out this role. I draw upon my own experience as a research data librarian at King’s college London as well as referring to the literature on the topic. I focus in particular on research data management training for researchers and the “unofficial” research data management curriculum. I also look at aspects of data management that we don’t include in our training – including domain specific guidance - and emphasise the importance of intra-organisational cooperation and researcher engagement for meeting the challenge of providing disciplinary specific support for research data management.
