Supporting research data throughout its entire life cycle requires a breadth of expertise that oftentimes spans across different departments within an institution, resulting in disparate sources of information and disjointed support for researchers. At the University of British Columbia (UBC), the Library and Advanced Research Computing (ARC) have been working towards a collaborative model of RDM support that aims to minimize researcher burden and maximize service quality. In this webinar we will discuss the history of the Library / ARC collaboration, sub-teams within these departments, collaborative initiatives, challenges, and future aspirations and goals for RDM at UBC.
Nick Rochlin is the Research Data Management Specialist in UBC’s Advanced Research Computing team. He is active in the Portage Network of RDM professionals, co-chairing the Training Expert Group and the Institutional Strategies Working Group, and an active member of the FRDR User Experience & Training Group.
Doug Brigham has been the Research Data Management Librarian at UBC Vancouver since 2020. He is the administrator for UBC’s space within Dataverse@Scholars Portal and provides support to researchers in many disciplines. He is a member of the Research Data Alliance.
Megan Meredith-Lobay is the Research Specialist for Humanities and Social Sciences at UBC Advanced Research Computing. In addition, Megan serves on the Compute Canada Humanities and Social Sciences National Team. She has worked at the University of Alberta where she supported research computing for the Faculty of Arts, and at the University of Oxford where she was the programme coordinator for Digital Social Research, an Economic and Social Research Council project to promote advanced ICT in Social Science research. Megan holds a PhD in archaeology and has a background in using GIS for exploring ritual early medieval landscapes.”
