About the Savvy Researcher
The Library's Savvy Researcher workshop series brings information professionals together with graduate students and faculty to explore topics related to research and academic success. Some workshops are tool-based, some focus on a particular library resource, and others are topical, but the goal of all is to help you understand and use the library efficiently and effectively.

If you are looking for better ways to manage your data or meet funder and/or publisher data requirements, this workshop will give you a solid overview of the data management and publishing landscape. This workshop highlights the importance and benefit of managing and publishing data, and introduces major data management and publishing concepts (e.g., storage, data description, sharing and access) through the framework of a data management plan. Attendees will learn about the DMPTool (an online wizard for creating data management plans) and work through a sample data management plan template for their own data. This is the first of a series of workshops focused on data management.
