Research data is becoming increasingly complex and problematic. National projects like Portage attempt to address the data management issues, and many libraries are working on local solutions. Much of data management has focused on preserving the data, but what about projects that aren’t finished and are still producing data? How do researchers store, access, alter and save their data in ongoing projects? What can libraries do to support these projects? With the rise of digital scholarship and digital humanities projects, researchers are turning to libraries for assistance with ongoing data storage. Learn one library’s project to address active data storage and the needs that libraries can fill in this area, as well as the challenges and partnership opportunities of such an undertaking.
