Overview Print Page


This guide is intended to support researchers who want to effectively manage their data. It is equally important for researchers to understand newer requirements from grant funding agencies for managing research data and the research data life-cycle. 

A variety of offices across campus can provide assistance in data management. For assistance in writing a data management plan or with data curation, please contact  escience@lib.uconn.edu



    For general questions about organizing, storing, archiving, sharing data and related metdata, legal and ethical concerns at any point in the life cycle of your research, consult or subscribe to our Listserv for data management called MANAGINGDATA-L.
