Managing data simply means planning for storage, organization, and long-term retrieval of your data. This is important for any researcher, and is mandated by some funders. This guide covers data management resources at UC Davis, including tools from the UC Libraries for writing funder-required data management plans and resources for identifying, storing and publishing data and datasets.
For more information, feel free to contact the Library Data Service Team (firstname.lastname@example.org).
