The last decade has seen a marked increase in the creation, analysis and reuse of data by scholars across a wide range of disciples. In response to this trend, the management and curation of data has become increasingly important for libraries in the digital and data age. The increased focus and demand for these library services have generated comprehensive and instructive works, like the ones reviewed here. These volumes, edited and organized by Lisa R.
