Even with foundational information, identifying and starting practical application of Research Data Management (RDM) as a social science liaison can feel overwhelming. Join Abigail Goben, MLS and Spencer Acadia, PhD, MA, MLS to discuss your potential level of library engagement; identify liaison skills that correlate to the research data life cycle; hear about the current experience of a social science liaison on the ground; and plan target partners throughout the library and organization for collaboration in RDM support. 

Learning Objectives: 

*Participants will identify potential goals for engagement at their institution in order to manage internal and external expectations. 

*Participants will correlate liaison skills to research data activities in order to identify areas of engagement.

*Participants will define current and potential partners through their institutions in order to find RDM collaboration opportunities.
