Assessing through Interviews the Data Management Behaviors and Needs of an Earth and Environmental Sciences Academic Department

Wang, Ting; Simboli, Brian

A post-doctoral CLIR fellow, Ting Wang, has been investigating the data management (DM) and curation behaviors and needs of faculty members in Lehigh University's Earth and Environmental Sciences (EES) department. Many EES faculty members have participated in detailed interviews as part of this investigation. The interviews have revealed a variety of data-related challenges. Some can be readily addressed by Lehigh's Library and Technology Services, while others pose new challenges. The interviewing process provides a model for similar initiatives at other university earth science programs, as well as a potential model for exploring data needs in other research venues and subject areas.
