The HKBU Library’s Research Data Services consist of three main service areas: data analytics and visualization support, research data management, and provision of data resources. As identified by the HKBU Institutional Strategic Plan 2018-2028, data analytics has become one of the three key research clusters to strengthen the university’s research profile.
