From Acquisition to Access to Archiving – Creating Library Data Services that Provide End-to-End Support for Library Acquired Data

« This case study outlines the challenges and opportunities that we are currently facing with data management of acquired datasets at the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) Library and the Stanford Libraries (SUL) that impact data preservation. We will compare and contrast our current approaches for managing data in our respective environments; discuss what is working and what needs to be changed or approached in a different way. We will also discuss how we envision a library data service that seeks to employ standard approaches, like the FAIR principles, i.e. findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable. We will identify ways to unify our approaches across our libraries so that we are not working in isolation of each other. We aim to provide considerations that will aid others facing these same data curation and preservation issues. (…) »
