  <dc:description>This presentation describes the Jisc Research Data Management (RDM) toolkit, an open resource targeted at research support staff, IT specialists and researchers from all disciplines and career stages. The toolkit is intended as a signposting tool that the research data community can use to educate itself on the basics of RDM, open science and open research, and also to identify new topics of interest. Content is updated on a quarterly basis to ensure that it is current, and the web design is continually assessed to ensure that it meets user requirements.

The toolkit represents collaboration at a variety of levels. It can help to foster collaboration between the various resources that it links. Additionally, it encourages the community to work together in order to build shared knowledge and expertise, which may have the effect of reducing the need for individual resources and therefore allow staff to spend their time on other things rather than creating RDM training material. Finally, we are managing the toolkit through international collaboration in the form of a working group with twenty experts from the UK, USA, Australia and Iran. In this presentation, we share our experience of working together to develop this community resource.
