"Earlier this month, the DCN announced the continuation of the RADS Initiative, a collaborative project between the Association of Research Libraries (ARL) and the DCN investigating institutional expenses for public access to research data. With new IMLS funding to continue this Initiative, phase one of this second funding cycle will continue research at three of the six original RADS institutions, and phase two will include working with five non-DCN institutions and bringing them into the DCN for two years at no cost.
The University at Buffalo Libraries, led by co-PI Jake Carslon, will now join RADS for phase one of this new cycle. Although the University at Buffalo (UB) was not an original RADS institution, we are excited that Jake and UB can join the Initiative, as this partnership will benefit the RADS research goals and the UB Libraries. Jake’s initial participation in RADS with the University of Michigan means he brings knowledge of the RADS methodology to UB, and we have an opportunity to test our methodology in a new environment before bringing in new institutions. Jake will also use RADS as an opportunity to gain a nuanced understanding of the research data management and sharing services and activities across campus at UB. Jake expands on these points in the interview below...."
