Why Manage Your Data? Print Page

Tools & Resources



Why share your data at all?

Funding agencies now require researchers to provide a data management plan as part of their funding proposals.

There is a  Data Management Planning Tool developed by a group of major U.S. research institutions offering ready-to-use templates to create data management plans for the NSF, NIH, NEH, NOAA, GBMF and IMLS. For other templates and tools, see the Tools & Resources box on this guide to the left.

The Claremont Colleges Library can provide consultative services to help campus researchers share, reuse, manage or archive their data. Contact your librarian.

Thanks to Marisa Ramirez for use of her research guide on Data Management Plans.

Thanks to Dorthea Salo of University of Wisconsin for sharing the reading lists for her 2012 course, Introduction to Research Data Management.
