The JISC-British Library Workshop Series
As part of this work, the Library is hosting a series of JISC-funded workshops with the aim of supporting and promoting good citation practices within the research community. The workshops will take place between May 2012 and March 2013 and will examine some of the challenges of implementing effective data citation from the perspective of the researcher, the data-user and the repository.
For details of past and forthcoming workshops, see the full Workshop Programme.

The British Library and DataCite
The British Library is a founder member of the DataCite organisation, a not-for-profit consortium of international libraries and research bodies, formed with the aim of making data a legitimate, citable contribution to the scholarly record.
Through DataCite, the British Library provides access to a global infrastructure for data citation and works with UK data centres to allocate Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) to datasets; making them easier to find, access and re-use.
