Collaborative Approaches to Undergraduate Research Training: Information Literacy and Data Management

Hailey Mooney, W. Aaron Collie, Shawn Nicholson, Marya R. Sosulski

Abstract


The undergraduate research experience (URE) provides an opportunity for students to engage in meaningful work with faculty mentors on research projects. An increasingly important component of scholarly research is the application of research data management best practices, yet this often falls out of the scope of URE programs. This article presents a case study of faculty and librarian collaboration in the integration of a library and research data management curriculum into a social work URE research team. Discussion includes reflections on the content and learning outcomes, benefits of a holistic approach to introducing undergraduate students to research practice, and challenges of scale.
