This may be of interest to some of you, especially those conducting a Seeding the Commons project in collaboration with your libraries.

Carlson, J. (2012). Demystifying the data interview: developing a foundation for reference librarians to talk with researchers about their data. Reference Services Review, 40(1), 7-23.

Abstract (abridged):

As libraries become more involved in curating research data, reference librarians will need to be trained in conducting data interviews with researchers to better understand their data and associated needs. This article seeks to identify and provide definitions for the basic terms and concepts of data curation for librarians to properly frame and carry out a data interview using the Data Curation Profiles (DCP) Toolkit. The DCP Toolkit is a semi-structured interview designed to assist librarians in identifying the data curation needs of researchers. The components of the DCP Toolkit were analyzed to determine the base level of knowledge needed for librarians to conduct effective data interviews. Specific concepts, definitions, and examples were sought through a review of articles, case studies, practitioner resources and from the experiences of the Purdue University Libraries.
