Data Management Planning

The story of your data from collection to curation is what we develop and document in what has been referred to as a data management plan. Together we can gather the requirements, apply best practices and preserve your research in such a way that even the google searcher can find the results you intend to share. Let the library be your partner in creating well-rounded, reproducible and preserved story of your research from collection to curation. Let’s move from good intentions to good practices.
