Data Management Plans (DMP)

A DMP is a formal document that details the strategies and tools you will use to effectively manage your data throughout your research project. The Library provides guidance to support the creation of your DMP.

Research Data Repositories

Many granting agencies are asking grant holders to make their research data publicly accessible.  Consult the library for guidance and support on depositing your research data into a repository.

File Organization

Organizing and naming your files effectively will make a significant impact on your ability to locate them and understand what they contain.  Records Management provides some helpful naming tips.
