Research Data Then and Now: Snapshots of Data Management Practices
Megan Sheffield, Anne Grant, Renna Redd (Clemson University), and Maggie Albro (Shippensburg University)

Clemson University began planning new data services through the library in 2012 with an environmental scan in the form of an online survey sent to all CU researchers. Due to unexpected turnover and administrative changes, the survey results were not acted upon immediately, and in 2013 many granting agencies started to implement new policies. As a result, CU Libraries decided to offer the survey again in 2016; many questions were left unchanged. This gave the data services team a unique data set that showed clear changes in the way a group of researchers approached digital scholarship in 2016 versus 2012. This data will be used at Clemson University to plan and implement new data services; the information gathered by comparing the two sets of survey results will be useful to other information professionals that are seeking clarity on changing attitudes about data sharing and data management.

The Sun Never Sets on Project Planning: Doing a Digital Project in a Traditional World
Trina Marmarelli and Angie Beiriger (Reed College)

Since November 2012, with generous support from the W.M. Keck Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Reed College’s department of computing and information services and its library have been working together with faculty members on a project aimed at increasing students’ capacity to engage with digital sources and tools as integral components of the research process. Our session will provide an overview of the project’s goals and how they have been realized through our course-based collaborations; we will then turn to a more focused case study of one new course, “Migration Histories in the British Imperial World,” that was taught at Reed in spring 2017 after almost two years of collaborative planning and design. In this interactive session, we will discuss the successes and challenges of this course and of our collaborative digital scholarship projects in general.
