US Federal funders increasingly require data sharing and/or data management plans for grant applications. If you currently writing or considering writing a grant that requires a data management plan, then this workshop is for you! In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the Data Management Plan Tool (DMP Tool), a free online resource designed to help you write this section of your grant application. UConn has a customized version of the tool with links to resources that will help you write your data management plan. Come learn how to use it!
A growing number of scholars and students are curating content associated with their research in a digital environment.

Omeka is a great way for you to share your research in a flexible and interactive setting or collaborate with other scholars or students. A list of resources and tips will be provided to participants.
