Update from LSE - Associate Partner in DISC-UK DataShare

LSE Library has been developing a new approach to the management and development of Data Library Services, following difficulties in recruiting to a single Data Library Manager post. We have identified the various strands of the service offered by the Library, and we are developing a team approach which will enable the flexible delivery and development of LSE Library services, along with the ability to actively participate in research and development activities in the field.

The Library has recently made the first appointment in this new team - with Dave Puplett taking up the post of Data Librarian on 6 October. Dave has worked in the Library since 2007, on a variety of projects focussing on improving access to electronic resources and exploiting new
web technologies. He has recently completed work on the JISC funded VIF project dealing with version identification of academic research in digital repositories.

Dave ('d dot puplett at lse dot ac dot uk') will be the main contact for the Data Library service.

Over the coming months we will continue to develop the Library's data services team and our commitment to the Data Library service remains as strong as ever.
