Many government agencies, including NSF and NIH, now require a Data Management Plan as part of your grant proposal for any projects that involve data collection. Christopher Center Library Services can provide assistance in composing a successive data management plan and can also digitally archive and publish data collections, if needed. For more information about Data Management Plans, please contact Jonathan Bull, Research Services Librarian or Brad Eden, Dean of Library Services.
In addition, while we develop our own website, the following URL provides an excellent description of the elements of such a plan and also some great examples of text for each section (often just a sentence or two).
