Research Data Services

Our librarians provide expert guidance, project consultation, and technical assistance on various aspects of data management and curation. You can consult us about data management planning, data sharing and publishing, long-term preservation, and related topics. In some cases, we can provide data architecture and governance, data transformation and manipulation, and custom software development.

If you need to write a data-management or -sharing plan for a grant proposal or journal submission, please see our guide to data management plans
