Dr Jenny Bunn is Program Director at Archive and Records Management at UCL. Jenny Bunn worked has previously worked as an archivist at the V&A Museum, The Royal Bank of Scotland Archives, Glasgow University Archives and The National Archives before moving to teaching and research at UCL.
Our discussion with Jenny offered an interesting perspective. Alongside Jenny’s insights as a researcher her professional experience as an archivist also informs her approach to RDM. Jenny emphasised the importance for researchers to reflect on what data could potentially be useful for other researchers and where to share this data most effectively and whether some data should not be kept. A central message of the interview was the need for researchers not to view RDM as ‘keeping everything’ but instead as viewing RDM as a key component of research integrity.
