I put these ideas down when I gave a talk for the Aust National Data Service (ANDS) training course for data librarians at universities.
- Finding out about data
- Getting data
- Putting data somewhere
- Doing stuff with data
- Finding out what has been done with data
- Sharing data with others
I suggest that the future needs actions that support each of these activities at the following levels:
- Individual researcher
- Research group
- Research centre
- Multi-university collaborative groups (e.g. CRC or CRE)
The government and private sectors may have some similarities, but I don't know.
