Summary and Setup

In this course we will walk you through providing data management plan services in your library. We begin with an overview of DMPs, then review relevant resources, share tips for providing services to patrons through data interviews, and using the DMPTool. Finally, we offered suggestions on how to implement DMP services at your library.

Looking to the future, it is likely that DMP services will continue to be a growth area for libraries. The 2022 Nelson Memo from the Biden White House will mandate sharing of federally funded research data and publications. This and similar federal policies will only fuel the movement towards open data, and, with it, the need for librarian support of data management and sharing.
