"This is an excellent book for anyone, not just information professionals, looking to ‘introduce and familiarize' themselves with a complex and challenging, yet increasingly important topic. The book benefits from a prestigious line-up of knowledgeable authors, including those who are actually ‘doing' research and research data management. As an edited volume it fits well together as a single entity even though written by a number of individuals: chapters reference other chapters and the reader is not left with a sense of a ‘cobbled-together' mix of disparate topics from different people. The content can equally well be dipped into, as read from cover to cover."
"...this collection belongs at every library considering or already implementing tools and services to help researchers manage their data better and comply with the bewildering array of data-related policies emerging from all quarters."
