Research Data Management (RDM)

How do we improve the usability of research data to move science forward? ‘Good Practices’ and ‘Lessons Learned’ from KIT. The National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) will continue to be established so that research data can become scientifically widely usable in the sense of data treasures with social added value, also with the goal of connectivity, e.g. to the European Research Cloud (European Open Science Cloud, EOSC). The summer event is aimed at researchers from all departments and institutes of the University of Hildesheim, as well as interested parties from the global RDM community (libraries, data centers, data protection officers, etc.), as well as for all those who are interested in our topics (Citizen Science) .

Since March 2018, the University Library’s service-oriented offers have been focussing on all researchers, i.e. from the bachelors to the post-docs as well as on all employees of the university. Research data are all data that arise in the research process or are the result of it. Research results have also changed in the way they are presented today, i.e. the ‚research outputs‘ are not only interesting and important for re-usable research in the context of scientific publications, but often when collecting data itself. Data becomes important in connection with a scientific data set or with scientific research software and various versioning systems. Research practice has therefore become an important part of research, for example how to use the research tools, how to deal with methods and, in general, the question within a project, what research actually means project-specifically, and how research is organized in every project.

Dr. Claudia Kramer

“Pure data acquisition does not bring science any further. The key is to improve the availability and reusability of research data.”

Under this motto, a team of IT specialists, librarians, scientists and other experts at KIT work together in the service team RDM, and to support researchers in all stages of the research process in FAIR data management. The offers include, for example, the Research Data Management Organizer RDMO tool, the directory for repositories re3data, and the information platform In addition to support local projects at KIT, the service team is also a partner in the development of RDM structures in the country (e-science initiative, nationwide (NFDI) and EOSC in a global context. It is always about the development of use cases and the establishment of best practice examples of how „responsible“ research can succeed in the context of good scientific practice.

Prof. Dr. Bernhard Weisser

The database work for the Münzkabinett, Numismatic Collection (State Museums in Berlin) has gained a new quality in 2017. Funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the Münzkabinett is participating in a project to index coins in forty participating university collections. The results are presented on a separate project website: Within this network, the Münzkabinett as a non-university partner has three tasks:
It is responsible for the processing and export of the required standard data enriched with IDs / LOD to the project partners. A separate portal was activated for this in 2019: The Münzkabinett coordinates the export of data from all IKMK partners, for which the formats LIDO and since 2019 JSON are available, and it offers advice and assistance with object documentation.
Since 2019, all numismatic digitization projects have been involved in the application process to create a national research data infrastructure and focus there on the NFDI4objects consortium

easydb is a flexible web framework to build up any kind of object, metadata and media repositories and to manage research data. easydb is offered at many university libraries as a central service to map different data structures in one or more instances. The focus is less on dynamic publishing with easydb, but rather on the ingest process and the sustainable management of metadata and related files. Based on the FAIR criteria, easydb features such as indexing and search, authentication and rights management, relational data structure, norm data support or DOI allocation will be presented with selected reference projects.

„Sharing Knowledge Through Research Data (Management) And Keeping Data Alive For Always New Knowledge“. Neues Wissen aus Daten an der SUH in Hildesheim. E-Science-Tage 2019 in Heidelberg: Data to Knowledge – Universitätsbibliothek Hildesheim, Forschungsdatenmanagement

Vom 27. bis 29. März 2019 finden die E-Science-Tage 2019 „Data to Knowledge“ in Heidelberg statt, an denen Annette Strauch aus der Universitätsbibliothek Hildesheim teilnehmen wird.

In diesem Jahr ist der Forschungsaspekt mehr in den Mittelpunkt gerückt. Die Sicht auf Daten wird ergänzt durch die Suche nach dem Wissen, das in den Daten steckt. Die E-Science-Tage 2019 orientieren sich an den Leitfragen:

  • Wie entsteht aus Daten neues Wissen?
  • Wie wird das Wissen geteilt und erhalten?

Es wird eine Brücke geschlagen von Konzepten, Technik, Infrastrukturen und Diensten hin zur Forschung und zum Erkenntnisgewinn, der aus der Untersuchung von Daten entsteht.

Impulscafé. Veranstalter: VDB-Kommission für forschungsnahe Dienste und FDM Hildesheim

Am 20. März 2019 beim Bibliothekskongress Leipzig stellte sich die neu gegründete Kommission für forschungsnahe Dienste vor (Veranstalter: VDB-Kommission für forschungsnahe Dienste).

Annette Strauch, Universitätsbibliothek Hildesheim, Forschungsdatenmanagement, gab ein Impulsvortrag zum Thema Forschungsdatenmanagement und (Open Science).

Forschungsnahe Dienste durch ein nachhaltiges Forschungsdatenmanagement in Bibliotheken.

Das Zitat

“Bad Libraries build collections. Good libraries build services (of which a collection is only one). Great libraries build Communities.”[1]

passt sehr genau in den Kontext der Integration des Forschungsdatenmanagement als Service von Bibliotheken auf dem Campus, nicht nur an der Universitätsbibliothek Hildesheim.

Folgende Fragen, die im Impulsvortrag genannt wurden und später an den Thementischen (Flipcharts) als Leitlinien für die Diskussion gedacht waren, standen im Fokus:

  1. Wie können Bibliotheken Forscherinnen/Forscher von der Forschungsidee bis zur Publikation eines Forschungsdatums bestmöglich unterstützen?
  2. Im Forschungsdatenmanagement ist ”Open“ sehr oft nicht möglich (z.B. bei sensiblen Daten in der qualitativen Sozialforschung/in den qualitativen Geisteswissenschaften). Wie sollten sich Bibliotheken (als forschungsunterstützende Services) in Kooperation mit dem Datenschutzbeauftragten der Universität z.B. mit rechtlichen Fragen im Forschungsdatenmanagement vorbereiten, damit sich Forscherinnen und Forscher nicht mit dem Thema „Open Science“ alleingelassen fühlen?

17.04.2019, 12.30 Uhr (UB, Raum B107) – „Coffee Lecture“ Universitätsbibliothek Hildesheim: Forschungsdatenmanagement an der Universität Hildesheim. Unterstützung durch die UB.

„Coffee Lectures“ sind ein bewährtes Konzept, um einen kurzen Einblick von 15 bis 30 Minuten in die vielfältigen Angebote des Forschungsdatenmanagement zu gewähren und die wichtigen Themen aufzugreifen. Die Universitätsbibliothek Hildesheim versorgt Sie vier Mal im Sommersemester 2019 mit Kurzvorträgen rund um das Forschungsdatenmanagement. Den Kaffee (oder auch Tee) gibt es von uns dazu.

Am 17.04. findet die erste „Coffee Lecture“ statt. Thema: „Forschungsdatenmanagement an der Universität Hildesheim. Unterstützung durch die UB“.

Die Nachhaltigkeit von Forschungsdaten, das Teilen von Forschungsdaten oder Publikationen von Datenbeständen gewinnen zunehmend an Bedeutung. Journals verlangen oft die Verfügbarmachung von Publikationen der zugrunde liegenden Daten eines Artikels. Universitäten, darunter auch die Universität Hildesheim, verabschieden Research Data Policies, und Forscherinnen und Forscher diskutieren sowohl die Chancen als auch die Risiken von „Open Data“, die Herausforderungen des Datenschutzes und der Forschungsethik.
Annette Strauch (Universitätsbibliothek Hildesheim) gibt einen kurzen Überblick zum Thema Forschungsdatenmanagement und stellt das Dienstleistungsspektrum der UB zu den E-Science Unterstützungsangeboten vor.

Ort und Zeit: Besprechungsraum UB, B 107, 12.30 Uhr.

Center for Digital Change

As part of the founding of the Center for Digital Change, there was a slot of the University Library on November 23, 2018 with the title: The University Library Hildesheim: Helping to shape the Digital Change. One of the topics by the University Library was research data management, which was met with great interest. The question was: how can research data be kept accessible, re-usable and verifiable on the basis of a sound research data management?

A dialogue took place with the participants, starting from a data definition, the research funding aspects, to data management plans and tools to create such DMPs, to data repositories, reliable storage, sustainability of research (including publications of data, further processing of data), on legal issues and digital preservation of research data.

In order to be able to use the analog and digital research data in the long term, comprehensive research data management is needed at the University of Hildesheim. For this reason, the University Library in Hildesheim deals with the complex task and all necessary cooperations in RDM, i.e. in collaboration with the data center. Information infrastructures (HilData, digital access systems) are being continuously developed by the new services (for example in the field of Open Access) and new services are furthermore being developed and interfaces to existing ones (such as the RDMO data management plan tool) have been created. Digital change is on the one hand to be seen in the context of open science, on the other hand, legal issues and research ethics determine research data management. Curation criteria and quality standards play a very important key role in the course of Digital Change, also at the University of Hildesheim!
