Spec Kit

ELP is pleased to announced the publication of a new SPEC Kit survey. This kit surveys ARL member libraries on their activities related to access, management, and archiving of research data at their institutions. In addition, the kit explores the organization of research data management services (including a few questions on broader data support services), how they are staffed and funded, and what services they offer and to whom, among other questions.

The SPEC Kit includes:

  • examples of research data policies
  • data retention policies
  • data management plan tools
  • job descriptions
  • data needs assessment tools
  • data archive web pages
  • staff resources

This book is coauthored by David Fearon (JHU), Besty Gunia (JHU), Barbara E Pralle (JHU), Sherry Lake (UVA), and Andrew L. Sallans (UVA).
