AbstractWhat do we know about data behaviours and needs of PhD students, especially in social sciences and humanities? How can academic libraries improve the research data management (RDM) of PhD students? How can they contribute to curation, preservation and sharing of research data related to electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs)? Which are realistic goals? The workshop will provide an introduction and overview of the field and help to better understand the challenge of RDM for academic libraries. It will describe the different RDM projects on the social sciences and humanities campus of the University of Lille, in particular the PhD training program and the development of a RDM infrastructure for the storage, preservation and sharing of research data related to ETDs. A large part of the workshop will be reserved for the discussion of the participants’ local initiatives, projects and questions.
