Recognizing the growing need to support SMU researchers’ data management needs, SMU Libraries offers a consultative service for research data management support. Librarians are available to provide one-on-one consultations for different aspects of the research data lifecycle in the following areas:
Data Access – explanation of the various options available to make your data accessible online
Data Management Planning – assistance in accessing and completing data management plans using the DMP Tool
Metadata Advice – instruction on creating metadata that makes your data more findable
Data Storage and Preservation – advice on best practices for storing and preserving your data
Instruction and Training – Librarians are available to provide in-class training, or meet with you and/or a group of your students to offer basic workshops on different topics related to data management
Please note that this is not a statistical consulting service, nor a service that provides consultation on any analysis technique. For more information on any of the areas for which we provide support, please read the SMU Libraries Research Data Management Support Policy or contact our data support team at email@example.com.
