Abstract:
Research data represent a valuable resource to academic and research communities. While they often require large investments of time and money to be created, many datasets have significant value beyond their original research purposes. Access to data can facilitate scrutiny of research outcomes, lead to new collaborations, and increase impact and visibility of research. Adequate management of data is necessary in order to make the best use of these valuable resources. Among the benefits of proper data management practices are: efficiency savings, risk management, access, and reuse. Proper data management provides an idea of data storage and processing requirements as well as potential improvement of workflows throughout the data lifecycle. Given the breadth of research occurring here, the University of Florida faces many of the challenges inherent to preserving, storing, managing, and making accessible large quantities of research data. The Health Science Center Libraries, George A. Smathers Libraries, and UF High Performance Computing Center (HPCC) are committed to developing local solutions to these challenges based on a comprehensive understanding of the UF data environment. To that end, we are in the process of performing a data services needs assessment, using surveys and interviews of UF researchers. We will present the preliminary results of this assessment, with an indication of future directions for library and HPCC services supporting campus data needs. This project has been funded in part with federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, under Contract # HHS-N-276-2011-00004-C.
