Apparently, NASA lost much of the early data from space exploration, including high quality video footage of the first moon landing. All the more reason to do as it says in the sub-title to the book. -- Alan Crowden * BES Bulletin * For researchers and consumers of data who are often fraught with managing excess information, Briney's book offers valuable techniques, strategies and standards to help achieve proficient data management and successful outcomes. This book can be useful to both novice researchers and well-established scientists alike. -- Mary F. Miles * Medical Reference Services Quarterly * ... recommended as a textbook for graduate-level research techniques courses. It's an important resource for academic and special library shelves and a vital reference for anyone working with data. -- Kristen LaBonte * Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship * Briney has written a useful primer on data management for researchers which provides practical advice throughout on managing data. It is easy to read and clearly structured. http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue75/cole -- Gareth Cole, Loughborough University Library * Ariadne * Kristin Briney's Data Management for Researchers is a book that should be on the shelf (physical or virtual) of every librarian, researcher and research administrator. Scientists, engineers, social scientists, humanists - anyone who's work involves generating and keeping track of digital data. This is the book for you. .... I recommend this book without hesitation for all academic libraries. Individual researchers, research administrators, funding agency employees and academic librarians would all find much useful information. Simply giving a copy to new graduate students is probably a worthwhile investment at any institution. http://scienceblogs.com/confessions/2016/01/11/reading-diary-data-management-for-researchers-organize-maintain-and-share-your-data-for-research-success-by-kristin-briney/ -- John Dupuis, York University Library, Toronto * ScienceBlogs *
