Research Data Services
Our librarians provide expert guidance, project consultation, and technical assistance on all aspects of data management and curation. You can consult us about data management planning, data sharing and publishing, long-term preservation, and related topics. We work closely with faculty and graduate students to optimize data management practices, curate data collections, and prepare data for dissemination.
Talk to us about your research, and we’ll help you manage data more effectively and achieve greater impact.
Data management planning
Whether you’re working alone or participating in a collaborative project, you can consult us about data management planning and implementation at any time. We’ll analyze your situation and help you develop management strategies that fit your methods, workflows, and objectives. You may be able to archive data and other research products with the University Libraries—please email us if you're interested in this option.
If you need to write a data management statement for a grant proposal or journal submission, please see our guide to data management plans.
Data curation projects
We are currently seeking partnerships with researchers to create and maintain unique, high-value, open-access digital data collections. If you would like to increase the visibility and public utility of your data, please contact us to arrange a conversation.
We can connect you to relevant services and resources across the campus and beyond. For example, we can direct you to data repositories, archives, or data centers for long-term archiving. Talk to us early in your research process, and we’ll prepare some recommendations.
