DIY research data management training

Robin Rice at  EDINA and Data Library, University of Edinburgh pointed me in the direction of this useful resource for DIY research data management training for librarians. A self training kit titled MANTRA http://datalib.edina.ac.uk/mantra/libtraining.html

The developers of the kit acknowledge the significant time commitment required for busy professionals to develop and conduct  professional development activity such as this. While the online course could conceivably be worked through by individuals it is suggested  that it may be best taken in small groups facilitated by an experienced data librarian and  facilitator material and schedule is provided. The online modules are a good mix of text, podcasts, visual and other materials. The areas covered are:

Session 1: Data management planning

Session 2: Organising & documenting data

Session 3: Data storage & security

Session 4: Ethics & copyright

Session 5: Data sharing
