Bringing Research Data into the Library: Expanding the Horizons of Institutional Repositories

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

The focus of library-managed institutional repositories has so far been on document-like items (published articles, preprints, theses, reports, working papers, etc.) but there is growing demand to expand their use into new genres such as scientific research datasets (sensor readings, genomics data, neuroimages, etc.). This webcast explains how institutional repositories are including this type of collection, what librarians need to know in order to manage such collections, and a few case studies from the MIT Libraries. ​
