From Summer 2020 to Summer 2021, a team of Georgia State University (GSU) University Library faculty took part in a multi-institutional research study coordinated by the Ithaka S+R research and consulting organization to examine the research support needs of faculty doing “big data” research. Drawing from semi-structured interviews with eight GSU researchers representing a diverse cross-section of academic fields, this report offers the following insights from participation in the study: (1) identifies the key research support needs and associated challenges faced by GSU faculty who engage in “big data” research, and (2) offers possible paths toward improved support of GSU researchers in this area that capitalize on the Library’s strengths and have feasible return on investment.
