In July 2012 LIBER's E-Science working group released 'Ten recommendations for libraries to get started with research data management'. Since then, several libraries across Europe have started to build up or have expanded their capacities for research data management, typically combining e-infrasrtucture and support services.

To further encourage libraries in continuing this process, LIBER's Steering Committee on Scholarly Communication and Research Infrastructures has collected case studies, hosted by or with strong involvement of libraries in research data management.

These studies describe policies and strategies that pave the way for the creation, institutional integration and the running of support services and underlying infrastructures. In addition, challenges and lessons learned are described and ways- forward outlined.

The 11 case studies can be accessed at http://libereurope/committee/scholarly-research/research-data-management-case-studies/
