Abstract: Slides from a presentation discussing the development of the UNCG University Libraries' research data management services. Many university libraries are expanding their research services to include support for research data needs. But in a climate of growing demands and limited resources, how can libraries explore these options and address these needs without breaking the bank in terms of staff time or expertise? The University Libraries of The University of North Carolina at Greensboro began exploring these questions in 2012 and are continuing to grow a suite of research data support services to meet demands on campus and to educate new researchers. This collaborative effort builds on existing strengths within the Libraries by bringing together personnel from Research, Outreach, and Instruction (ROI); Technical Services; and Electronic Resources and Information Technology (ERIT). This presentation discusses the scope and component pieces of the University Libraries' research data management services, including the development of our service model and various associated activities: support for data management planning, a series of workshops for graduate students created in collaboration with our Institutional Review Board, outreach and training efforts, and institutional repository integration. Presenters address specific roles, workflows, challenges, and lessons learned, and provide perspectives from both public and technical services. This presentation was delivered on February 24th, 2017 as part of the Empirical Librarians Conference at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, NC. Co-presented by Anna Craft and Lynda Kellam.
