About this website​


The Leiden Research Data Service Catalog aims to help researchers make a reasoned choice when planning for the management and the storage of their data. Services are organized according to faculty, phase in the research project or step in the research data life cycle. For each service, information is provided on the use, terms, features and possible costs. The catalogue is maintained at the Centre for Digital Scholarship at Leiden University in collaboration with users and service providers. ​

The website is still under development and we are working hard to keep the information up-to-date. Please contact us when you like to add a service or if information is incorrect: cds@library.leidenuniv.nl.

national implementation of the catalog has been created on the webpages of the LCRDM (National Coordination Point RDM). In the coming years, we aim to explore the further development of the catalog, align with national and international tools, improve the interface and organise its content management in a sustainable way. The ultimate goal is to offer an integrated set of services which can effectively support the entire research process. 

The catalog was created initially as part of a university-wide project on data management (2015 – 2016). The project team consisted of the following members:

Laurents Sesink (Project Manager; Leiden University Libraries)
Michelle van den Berk (Leiden University Libraries)
Johan DeTollenaere (Science Faculty)
Floor Frederiks (Department of Academic Affairs)
Fieke Schoots (Leiden University Libraries)​
Hans van Eck (ICT Shared Service Centre)
Peter Verhaar (Leiden University Libraries)
