An Introduction to Research Data Management for the Accidental Data Services Librarian

Have you recently been tasked with offering research data management services to your community but don't know where to start? As research data management plans are increasingly becoming a requirement for funding and many journals require authors to share their data, libraries have an opportunity to support campus researchers by providing training, resources, and services. In this lesson, we'll discuss what a data management plan is, why it's important, best practices for completing one, and how librarians can bolster the services they provide.
