Data Repositories

Long-term retention and continued access to data depends on data being stored in an adequate and appropriate repository. Most funding agencies will require you to include details about your choice of repository in a data management plan. 

For assistance in identifying a repository for your data, email us at lib-research-data@umd.edu.

You should evaluate a potential data repository in the following areas:

  • Cost
  • Scope and audience
  • Acceptable data formats
  • File size limits
  • Types of access restrictions
