RDAP Mission

RDAP (Research Data Access & Preservation) supports an engaged community of information professionals committed to creating, maintaining, advancing, and teaching best practices for research data, access, and preservation.

RDAP Community

The RDAP community brings together a variety of individuals, including data managers and curators, librarians, archivists, researchers, educators, students, technologists, and data scientists from academic institutions, data centers, funding agencies, and industry who represent a wide range of STEM disciplines, social sciences, and humanities.

Annual RDAP Summit

The RDAP Summit provides a venue for reaching across disciplines, institutions, and organizations to learn about common solutions to issues surrounding research data management. Attendees of the summit have multiple opportunities to expand professional networks and acquire practical knowledge and skills that can be applied to their own work and projects.

The 2020 RDAP Summit will be held at the Santa Fe Convention Center in Santa Fe, NM.
