"This is an excellent book for anyone, not just information professionals, looking to 'introduce and familiarize' themselves with a complex and challenging, yet increasingly important topic. The book benefits from a prestigious line-up of knowledgeable authors, including those who are actually 'doing' research and research data management. As an edited volume it fits well together as a single entity even though written by a number of individuals: chapters reference other chapters and the reader is not left with a sense of a 'cobbled-together' mix of disparate topics from different people. The content can equally well be dipped into, as read from cover to cover." --Ariande
"The book provides a good introduction to RDM, but would also be of use to those readers very experienced in all matters to do with research data curation and management. I was impressed by the clarity and liveliness of the prose- inevitably any book on a relatively "dry" topic will have stretches of unexciting or technical prose, but this book's style of writing is in general mercifully free from this problem. I would recommend it for middle to senior library managers who are looking to dip their toe into the murky waters of RDM; senior university managers wanting a broad overview of RDM policy and practice; and to those already well-versed in RDM matters but wanting to know about recent developments in RDM, as well as its future." --SCONUL Focus
"...this collection belongs at every library considering or already implementing tools and services to help researchers manage their data better and comply with the bewildering array of data-related policies emerging from all quarters." --Collaborative Librarianship
