Presenting some headline results from the Sheffield iSchool's recent survey of UK academic library activity in RDM. This reveals the pattern of existing and planned RDM support across UK HE. In this context, the JISC funded RDMRose project is creating RDM learning material tailored for information professionals. The speakers will talk about the different ways the freely available Open Educational Resources can be accessed and used. The material has been designed to focus on increasing understanding of all the stakeholders in RDM, especially researcher perspectives, but also that of other professional services. It is based on real world examples and case studies, and practical activities.
