Making FAIR data a reality requires collaboration and efforts at various levels. Libraries can and do play a core role at the institutional level in applying the FAIR principles in day to day practice.
- Presents first hand experiences from libraries applying the FAIR principles
- Highlights and summarizes the knowledge, skills and competencies of this newly evolving data profession in libraries, and
- Provides guidance and action points for further development of the data profession in libraries.
We invite library data experts, staff as well as newcomers to join us for a lively discussion on the FAIR state-of-play in libraries and the road ahead.
The workshop will address the following questions:
What roles and responsibilities have libraries in making FAIR a reality, where are libraries most relevant?
How are the FAIR-principles applied in daily practice?
How do library data experts connect with other data experts e.g. data engineers, data scientists?
How do library and disciplinary data professions evolve in a FAIR data ecosystem?
What are main challenges for implementing FAIR, and possible steps to address these?
Additionally, the workshop will provide a report about recent activities of the working group, e.g. a survey on FAIR at the level of repositories and a collection of case studies.
