About the Seminar: this presentation will give an introduction to the Portage Network, an initiative of the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL) with the goal of building research data management (RDM) capacity in Canada through a network of experts in a growing community of practice. The story of Portage is one of successes, challenges, and hope. As Canada’s national, library-based research data management network, the goal of Portage is to coordinate and expand existing expertise, services, and infrastructure in support of academic researchers across Canada. The session will focus on the importance of data management and progress made by the Portage Network in finding solutions to practical challenges researchers and institutions face in meeting journal and funding-agency requirements. Specifically, we will describe the strides Portage has made in responding to the three pillars of the emerging Canadian Tri-Agency, which represents the three major Canadian federal research funding agencies, Research Data Management Policy, and how Portage continues to innovate and contribute to the RDM ecosystem on both practical and policy fronts.
