DMP workshop

Library workshop will cover basics of writing data management plan

Data management plans are now required from most funding agencies as a part of any application for research grants, and the University of Delaware Library will offer a workshop on the topic on Thursday, March 23.

The “Writing a Data Management Plan” workshop will cover the basics of writing a data management plan (DMP), including what elements must be included in the plan, where to locate appropriate metadata schemas and subject specific data repositories, and licensing restrictions that might be appropriate for your research data.

Participants will also see a live demonstration of the DMPTool, an online resource that helps create a DMP and has many helpful resources relayed to data management. The workshop is co-sponsored by the IT-Client Support and Services and the University of Delaware Research Office.

“Writing a Data Management Plan” will be offered from 10-11:30 a.m., Thursday, March 23, in Library Instruction Room 114 on the first floor of the Morris Library.

Presenters will be Tom Melvin, librarian, Reference and Instructional Services Department, and Anita Schwartz, scientific application analyst, IT Research and Computing.

This workshop is available at no charge and is open to University of Delaware faculty and graduate students. Seating is limited and registration is required. For a complete listing of workshops and to register online, go to this website.

Participants are welcome to use the resources of the University of Delaware Library on-site. All visitors to the Morris Library need to have photo identification to enter the building, e.g., a UD ONEcard, a U.S. driver’s license or a government-issued or school-issued photo ID.
