RDIM Step 6 - Review Review Custodian Roles

Review Custodian Roles

Staff (researchers) continually join and depart employment at the university. As these staff often hold the role of Data Manager, it is critical that these responsibilities are appropriately managed, and when staff leave their employment, that data management responsibilities are transferred to another staff member. These changes also need to be reflected in the metadata records in Research Data JCU.

When employment ceases, either fixed-term or casual, contact us at researchdata@jcu.edu.au to request a report on custodian responsibilities in your area, and/or to advise of custodian changes. We will then update the metadata records in Research Data JCU on your behalf.
