The Long List of Data Management Books

There was a long discussion on twitter yesterday (okay, I went on a rant) about the vast number of data management books that have been published for librarians in the past few years. While not exclusively data management books for librarians, here is the long list of data management books that I’m aware of:

We do not need any more “here’s how to build data services at a large research institution in a western country” books, thank you. I would happily buy books about data services at smaller institutions, in non-western countries, for data service support beyond PhDs and faculty, for building on data information literacy principles, and how to manage data when you’re a researcher (I’m happy to have competition for my own book!).

Please feel free to point people to this post when someone suggests writing/publishing another “building data services for librarians” book.

    Thanks for this list Kristin. I have a list of my own (which was missing a couple from your list). My list is for manuals/books/chapters on general topics of Data management, not specifically DM for Librarians. Here’s a link if you want to add any from my list to yours:
