Matt Harp and Mimmo Bonanni will introduce the concept of research data as an information resource librarians can integrate into their programs. They will first discuss what research data are and how to find them via institutional and disciplinary data repositories which are not always indexed in library catalogs. Mr. Harp will explain how the OpenDOAR index of open access repositories and the Re3dat.org index of research data repositories can be used to support users’ research. Mr. Bonanni will then do a brief showcase of the ICPSR repository which holds social science-related data and discuss what is openly available vs what is available to subscribing institutions. We will also note how research data can be cited and utilized in academic and personal research.
