In this webinar, attendees will learn about an ongoing research project designed to a) identify how and where Canadian-funded research data is shared by examining the scholarly literature, and b) highlight data management problems associated with these existing data sharing practices. These efforts will serve as a jumping off point to explore the roles that librarians and the Portage Network can play in making Canadian research data more discoverable, regardless of where it may be stored. Attendees will learn about methods that can be used to identify research data shared by their own research communities, engage in a discussion about opportunities for working collaboratively to increase data discovery at an institutional level, and develop strategies to improve the reporting of data sharing going forward.
Presented by: Kevin Read, MLIS, MAS, Associate Librarian, University of Saskatchewan
This webinar will be presented in English and recorded. Engagement during the webinar in both official languages is welcomed. Previous webinar recordings are available on the CARL YouTube Channel. Links to the recordings and slides can also be found on Portage Training Resources.
