National libraries have developed research data responsibilities for reasons of data ownership and cost-efficiency. Due to their multi-faceted and synergistic relationship with research data actors (publishers and researchers), their leadership in publication standards makes them a unique participant as advisors on research data archiving and citation, as much as for their discovery and licensing expertise. National libraries engage with the data community to raise awareness of the relevance of data management and so promote themselves as an essential place for data repositories and the researcher community. This chapter introduces a framework of five national libraries: the British Library, the Library of Congress, the National Library of Medicine, the German National Library of Science and Technology, and the German National Library of Medicine.

Goals And Objectives

To meet the theme of this book, this section aims to help practitioners understand the mix of scholarly and technological challenges that national libraries face while searching for a new cross-border research data infrastructure. In these national libraries the method of study is based on:

  • The relationships between the library and the computer and data centre that may exist within the organizations which serve as its model;

  • All the data policies and plans prepared at the organization to develop and exploit strategies for research data management.
