This paper explores the roles, functions, and possible definitions of data librarians based on two Australian National Data Service (ANDS) case study projects at Monash University and Swinburne University of Technology. The experiences, challenges, and achievements from these research data management projects are examined by discussing the various factors involved, such as liaison with researcher and organisation stakeholders, and the implementation of technological solutions.
