The University of Central Florida (UCF) Libraries has developed a series of research data management sessions to provide support and promote awareness of available resources to the campus community, with an emphasis on outreach to graduate students and faculty. The Libraries does not have a formal research data management team or dedicated positions, and with this in mind, a team of librarians from Reference & Information Services, Digital Initiatives, and Scholarly Communication collaborated to plan opportunities for RDM programming.
This team developed a STEAM Bootcamp series piloted in 2019-2020 with a four-part series of RDM workshops ranging from STEAM-focused literature reviews to data visualization. As this series developed, the team explored other opportunities for collaborations on campus – leveraging expertise and resources from other academic and research units. Attendees will learn how we collaborated internally and externally to develop this pilot program and plans for a broader workshop series in 2020-2021.
