Data Management Education Needs: Identifying Signposts for Graduate Student Researchers : A MidContinental Region Webinar
Effectively managing research data is a skillset that graduate students need to acquire along their pathway to becoming competent researchers. Librarians can help guide learning by establishing instructional signposts for relevant data management concepts, including data sharing practices. To be effective, librarian guides need to be familiar with the knowledge and skill gaps of the novice researchers. Surveys were conducted at two medium-sized universities to assess perceived importance and knowledge of 12 research data management competencies, with a goal of informing education planning. Graduate students provided insight into sources of learning about research data management. Study results set the foundation for identifying approaches to research data management education.
Dr. Judy Pasek is a STEM Liaison Librarian with the University of Wyoming Libraries.
