Subject Area
Libraries are about connecting people with information and one of the new realms of information is data. Catherine Clark, University Librarian at Curtin University, talks about the benefits of collaboration and skills the library brings in making research datasets more widely available.

research data is increasing in size and complexity and I've worked at universities for a long time and I've
seen over that period of time how important it is for researchers to work together with data that's already been produced by others libraries have always
really been about connecting people with information and of course in the very
different information world that we're in now it's much more than about traditional books and journals and one of the new realms in terms of information is data sets and so libraries from day one have been about describing types of information and making them available so really this is just an extension I see of that so we're using some different skills because it's a different type of thing that we're describing but we're really very much in
the business of making information
available so that people who want to use those materials are able to then find
them so the benefits that I see from collaboration are really in showing what
the library can do in this space what the library brings to the University in
this is those skills that then make these datasets more widely available which is a benefit to Curtin because
other researchers may pick up these datasets and work with them and make new
discoveries and of course Curtin gets some credit as part of that process so
there's a really big benefit I think that the library is bringing in terms of Curtin as a whole
