Over the past few years, an increasing number of academic libraries have been adding or supplementing research data management support and services to their offerings. In an effort to support different stakeholders (e.g. students, library faculty and librarians, and disciplinary faculty), Purdue Libraries faculty and staff have developed several different tools and resources specifically designed for librarians and liaisons in supporting research data management. These resources and tools have been developed through innovative partnerships and include the Data Information Literacy (DIL) Project, a partnership between faculty and librarians across multiple institutions; the Purdue University Research Repository (PURR), created through a collaboration between the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR), Information Technology at Purdue (ITaP), and the Libraries; the institutional repository, e-Pubs; the Purdue University Press, which has published books and other publications for supporting research data management; and the Data Curation Profiles (DCP) Toolkit project, a collaboration between two institutions, including a graduate school of library and information science. This poster will illustrate how library faculty and librarians at Purdue have been leveraging these tools and resources to build education and training programs specific to the different stakeholders.
