Abstract

This case study details how a data services librarian and a science librarian collaborate to provide embedded data management support for the research-oriented Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences at Rutgers University-Newark. Combining their familiarity with emerging professional practices and resources, their efforts to gain a deeper understanding of the specific data management needs of researchers in the department, and their research into the evolving research data infrastructure in that particular discipline, the two are able to successfully connect researchers with the best practices in data management, suitable data repositories, and experts in the campus Computing Services unit.
