A Match Made in Data Heaven: Libraries Partnering with Offices of Research

As requirements for data capture and sharing increase, offices of research are looking for partners in providing these services. Guess what? They are looking for you. They are looking for your repository services. You, in turn, find a valuable partner in identifying faculty data and research needs and embed yourself more deeply into the research ecosystem.

At Utah State University, Betty Rozum, Data Services Coordinator, and the repository team, led by Becky Thoms, have worked with their Office of Research and other campus stakeholders, such as Central IT, to provide exemplary data support services to USU faculty. During the webinar, Betty and Becky discuss how they’ve built this mutually beneficial relationship, what the partnership looks like, and how their resulting collaborations have supported larger institutional goals. They’ll also share strategies for making the connection with your own office of research.
