Research data is the data which is generated when the researchers undertake or execute any research activity or project. The data may be textual, quantitative, qualitative, images, recordings, musical compositions, verbal communication, experimental readings, simulations, codes and so on. It needs to be preserved for future use.In this context, the paper has studied the research data management (RDM) services implemented by different university libraries for managing, organising, curating and preserving research data generated at their universities’ departments and laboratories, for reusing and sharing. It has surveyed the central university libraries and the best 20 university libraries of the world to highlight how RDM is extended to the researchers. Further, it has suggested a model for the university libraries in the country to follow for actually deploying RDM services.
