Librarians' Perspectives on the Factors Influencing Research Data Management Programs
Faniel, Ixchel M.; Connaway, Lynn Silipigni
College & Research Libraries, v79 n1 p100-119 Jan 2018
This qualitative research study examines librarians' research data management (RDM) experiences, specifically the factors that influence their ability to support researchers' needs. Findings from interviews with 36 academic library professionals in the United States identify 5 factors of influence: (1) technical resources; (2) human resources; (3) researchers' perceptions about the library; (4) leadership support; and (5) communication, coordination, and collaboration. Findings show different aspects of these factors facilitate or constrain RDM activity. The implications of these factors on librarians' continued work in RDM are considered.
