The Holistic Librarian – Open for Business!

We have started piloting research data management training with Afzal Hasan, the Subject Librarian for Arabic and Islamic Studies and Politics at the University. The training will take the form of “23 Things for Research Data Management” (see, for example, the 23 Things Cambridge blog). It will be a self-directed course designed to help our Subject Librarians become familiar with the concepts and practicalities of research data management. The pilot training will take place over a period of several months. Once each Thing has been completed, Afzal will report back on the task via this blog and help us to refine the training so that it meets the needs of Subject Librarians in this area.

In this video, Afzal talks about why he has agreed to take part in this pilot training and what he hopes to get out of the experience.

Afzal is already working on “Thing 1” so check the blog soon to hear his thoughts and opinions on the task.

    This sounds like a really interesting, non-threatening approach 🙂 How did you decide what the 23 things should be?

    Hi Rachel,

    We are still in the process of deciding what all the 23 things will be, and will take into account Afzal’s feedback as well as discoveries we make along the way – they are likely to change as we go along. Watch this space for more information!
