CILIP’s Professional Knowledge and Skills Base (PKSB)

This course supports the following elements of CILIP’s PKSB:
2. Knowledge and Information Management: 2.3 Data Management
4. Research Skills: 4.1 Understanding Research


There is an increasing understanding that data collected during research needs to be managed more carefully.  It is in researchers’ own interests to do so, and increasingly funders also mandate data planning.  The scale, diversity and fragility of digital data make this challenging.  Universities are beginning to develop a support infrastructure that will help improve research data management.  Some libraries are already beginning to play a key role in defining and delivering this infrastructure.

The course encompasses the skills require by librarians and information professionals to support all stages of the research process, offering an introduction to Research Data Management (RDM) and the role of librarians and information professionals.
