If you keep hearing about research data management but don’t really know what it’s all about, this session is for you, whether you are a faculty member competing for NSF grants, a researcher managing data for a lab, a graduate student wanting to develop an in-demand skill, or a librarian wanting to help researchers and students with data.  The goal of data management is to ensure that data is secure, discoverable and preserved for future use, by you and other researchers. This session will cover the benefits of managing data; ways to manage data on a day-to-day basis (e.g., file naming, storage, versioning); key points for preserving data; options for sharing data; and data’s unique issues with citations, intellectual property and privacy.
