Abstract: The first-level discipline of “LIS & Archives Management” has been officially renamed as“Information Resource Management” (hereafter referred to as IRM), which opens a new chapter of discipline reform and strategic layout. As the new discipline name has a richer connotation, colleagues in the academic field can take this opportunity to open up new tracks and fields for development. By doing so, we can actively respond to the needs of IRM discipline development in the new era, and build a distinctive discourse system of Chinese IRM discipline. To build new advantages and dynamics for the discipline construction, "Data Management" is widely discussed by the academic community as one of the new second-level disciplines. To this end, this study deeply explains the disciplinary scope of data management, the relationship between information science, library science, archival science, and data management, and thus clarifies integration and innovation as the disciplinary orientation of data management. Next, this study explores the data management under the construction of new liberal arts, analyzes the data management towards the main economic battlefield, and thus indicates cross-innovation as the development trend of data management. Finally, this study discusses the degree education and education patterns of data management. On this basis, this study emphasizes that for the new journey of the discipline, data management can release the data dividends in the original research system of “LIS & Archives Management”, promote the cross-innovation of IRM discipline, and achieve the integration of industry-academia-research better. As such, a favorable new situation of IRM discipline construction can be created by incorporating data management.
