This paper introduces the JISC DataPool project, with a specific focus on implications for archaeology. The DataPool project will build capacity within the institution to support good data management practice across all disciplines, including multi-disciplinary activity, throughout the data lifecycle. This will enable us to share and develop expertise and engagement within the institution so that we can share data, openly where possible, with the wider community. The focus on cultural change will be underpinned by development of the technical infrastructure and a clear policy framework. This supports the middle phase of the 10 year roadmap identified by the previous JISC funded Institutional Data Management Blueprint (IDMB) project. Activity and dissemination will be closely integrated with the work of the University's multi-disciplinary Strategic Research Groups (USRG) to ensure continuing alignment with leading-edge institutional strategy.!/jiscdatapool
