Abstract

The principles of the Open Access movement incorporate the need for open access to data, or Open Data. Research funding bodies are mandating the release and re-use of data, but small-scale research projects may lack the resources to implement Open Data management procedures. Libraries and institutional repositories, which have focused efforts on managing text resources rather than data, can assist in addressing this problem by collaborating with the research community.
