Data Management

We are available to consult and provide guidance on data management practices that meet the needs of your research team as well as comply with the expectations of research sponsors. As researchers, it is important to understand and comply with best practices related to handling data during your research. There are many requirements, policies, and procedures at institutional, regulatory, and funder levels that impact how research can be conducted. 

We partner closely with the Library Data Services Program (LDSP) and the California Digital Library (CDL) to provide support for tools that assist with data management, specifically the DMPTool, which offers templates for data management plans. We also work closely with administrative units on campus -- such as the Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects (IRB) and the Research Administration & Compliance Office at large -- to engage with researchers early on to determine methods for managing data effectively and efficiently.
