A collaborative platform for answering research data questions in academic libraries

About DataQ

The Project

DataQ is a collaborative platform for the community to use to ask and answer questions related to research data support in academic libraries. Library staff from any institution may submit questions on research data topics to the DataQ website, where questions are reviewed by an Editorial Board of experts. Answers to these questions, from both the community and the Editorial Board, are posted to the DataQ website and include links to resources and tools, best practices, and practical approaches to working with researchers to address specific research data issues. As of 2018, the DataQ Editorial Board will operate as a committee of the Association of College and Research Libraries Digital Scholarship Section with additional financial support for DataQ provided by the Greater Western Library Alliance. Initial leadership for DataQ came from the University of Colorado Boulder Libraries, the Greater Western Library Alliance, and the Great Plains Network with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
