Research data management is essential in the research enterprise. Many grant agencies now require data management plans to be included in grant proposals. Data management plans specify how research data will be stored and shared to ensure data is handled and preserved appropriately. Processes and options can be daunting, but they needn’t be. Hear how libraries are well-positioned to assist researchers with these requirements from librarians actively involved in data management initiatives at their institutions.
At the end of this program, participants will...
1. have an increased awareness and knowledge of data management plans and data sharing
2. learn some of the ways that libraries are participating in and supporting this aspect of research
3. gain insight into and ideas for how they may support researchers at their institutions
This program is intended for library directors, librarians, and researchers at research institutions. Anyone interested in data management and scholarly communications. Anyone involved in research with data management plan or data sharing requirements.
