What happens to my research data when I retire?

It’s important that we keep and store the research done by Senior Scientists before they retire. Their data is valuable. and might be even more valuable in the future. But to store the data correctly we need the researchers to help sort the data.

Lars Figenschou, biologist and Academic Librarian at the University Library at UIT – The Arctic University in Tromsø, explains why.
In addition, he gives us some good tips on how to create a program at the University that secures valuable data.
