A Librarian Out of the Library

Author
  • T. Scott Plutchak (University of Alabama at Birmingham)

Abstract

As librarians move into new roles, such as research data management, they sometimes find themselves moving, both organizationally and physically, out of the library. While this dislocation can be professionally unsettling, the shift in perspective that it brings can heighten their and their colleagues’ appreciation for the particular skills and talents that librarians can bring to the research enterprise.

Keywords: RDM, librarians, data management, organizational culture
