This talk addresses the next big challenge for academic and libraries, data sharing of research data – not necessarily tied to journal publication. Addressing the international research landscape where funding agencies have begun to require research data management plans, the talk discusses what steps an academic institution can begin taking, the stakeholders who need to be at the table, the challenges faced, and the lessons learned thus far. The talk will also discuss what toolkits are available as well as free online resources (including courses) to help institutions move ahead toward making research data more accessible. Practical examples, including those within an Asian context, will be offered.
