The Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) and the Southeast Universities Research Association (SURA) have endorsed language to assist their member institutions in drafting sound policies to govern the uses and management of research data generated by university faculty and staff.
John Burger, Executive Director of ASERL noted that “An emerging need for research universities is to craft policies that ensure research data are used and managed appropriately for the long term. We are pleased to join together with our SURA colleagues to offer such a useful tool to help our members have fruitful conversations on their campuses to meet this need.”
