Welcome to the library’s home for Data Management! We want to help you craft a data management plan, and manage, preserve, and share your research data in UTC Scholar, the university’s institutional repository.
Create a Data Management Plan (DMP)
The library strongly advises the use of DMPTool, a free, online tool that takes you step-by-step through the process of creating a DMP that meets the standards of more than 30 funding agencies.
Additionally, you may find the following resources useful for creating plans:
- MIT Libraries Write a Data Management Plan
- UCSD Libraries Data Management Best Practices
- ICPSR Guide to Social Science Data Preparation and Archiving
- Oak Ridge National Laboratory Data Management for Data Providers
Consult with the Library
Once you have created a draft of your DMP, we strongly advise that you request a Data Management Consultation. During this consultation, you’ll meet with a librarian to review your plan and learn about options for long-term preservation in UTC Scholar.
If you have questions regarding data management, do not hesitate to email UTC Scholar.
