The purpose of this paper is to chart the development of research data management services within the University of Bristol, from the initial Jisc-funded project, through to pilot service and planned core funding of the service.
The paper provides a case study of the approach of the University of Bristol Library service to develop a sustainable Research Data Service.
It outlines the services developed during the project and pilot phases of the service. In particular it focuses on the sustainability planning to ensure that research data management is embedded as a core university service.
The case study provides practical advice and valuable insights into the issues and experiences of ensuring that research data management is properly valued and supported within universities.
