I have to admit from the outset that when I was invited to review Delivering Research Data Management Services: Fundamentals of good practice by Pryor, Jones, and White, I was concerned that I may not be able to write a useful review for librarians looking for a source that would help them in the implementation of research data management (RDM) services. My concerns, however, were allayed after reading the first chapter of the book. I realized that this book was one that librarians can learn from, use, and adapt...the book is presented in a straightforward and scholarly manner without the overuse of jargon. (Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship)

The first five chapters address practical concerns of interest to universities, institutes, and libraries as they approach the management of research data. The remaining chapters consist of case studies on research data management projects at five institutions.
I recommend this to anyone interested in practical approaches to managing research data.
