The Jisc MRD programme has been working with the Digital Curation Centre throughout the life of the programme and this relationship is fruitful in several directions. One of the most gratifying, however, is seeing the outputs of the programme being used and re-used in DCC training events.
Sarah Jones and Marieke Guy from the DCC were in Northampton this week, working alongside Miggie Pickton to offer training to librarians in research data management. They used the excellent UK Data Archive ‘Managing and Sharing Data’ guide as well as outputs from Jisc MRD projects including ADMIRe, MANTRA, Research360, RDMRose, RoaDMaP and TraD.

and the supporting workbook here: http://www.dcc.ac.uk/webfm_send/1245

Sarah has also blogged on the DCC website about the day, with some tips for what works well, at http://www.dcc.ac.uk/news/rdm-training-librarians.
Have you re-used Jisc MRD project materials (even your own) or any other training materials in your own events? What worked and what didn’t? Let us know in the comments!
