Data are a core research output.  Scientific and scholarly communities, research funders, universities, and policy makers are recognizing the importance of and addressing challenges related to organizing, describing, sharing, and preserving borne digital data.  Increasingly, academic libraries and librarians are contributing to efforts to address these challenges.  This panel workshop will offer attendees a thoughtful, interactive, and actionable introduction to building and delivering research data management services.  Attendees will learn about the primary activities and importance of data management across the scholarly lifecycle; the policies, trends, and technologies affecting researchers and the organizations that support them; and, the expertise, staffing, and resources libraries must consider when building successful and sustainable services.
