Libraries ensure that their collections continue to be accessible over time. Through applying our knowledge of preservation to research data sets, librarians can help researchers to take action to sustain the scholarly value of their data over time.
- Helping researchers consider what preservation needs they may have with their data
- Providing guidance on how researchers could prepare their data for preservation through robust documentation and selecting formats that are more open than proprietary
- Locating data repositories that provide appropriate preservation services
- Helping navigate through the process of submitting data into the UM repository
