Jason A. Clark (Montana State University) has written a post about his experience with the Digital Library Federation (DLF) E-Research Network, a “community of practice focused on sharing resources for implementing research data management services as well as for shared skill development and collaboration.” Clark outlines some of the immediate benefits of participating in the program, while also considering the long-term value of the endeavor:
As I see it, the DLF E-Research Network can be a part of that movement and help us build research libraries that are conversant with how data is created, shared, and shaped into new tools and services.
Registration for the 2015 E-Research Network is open until March 31st. The fee per institution with up to three participants is $3,000; DLF members and CLIR sponsors receive a $500 discount on the institutional fee.
