Flyer - Brown Bag Series - Data Management 2015

Brown Bag Series: Data Management

At the University of Texas at Austin, faculty, researchers, and students across all disciplines are engaged in research projects that use, gather, and/or create data.   Throughout the research life cycle, as data grows in size and complexity, so does the infrastructure needed to support data. Currently, major funding agencies are requiring researchers to include data management plans in their grant proposals including best-practices for creating and developing data, as well as plans for its long-term accessibility/archiving when applicable.

A multidisciplinary team including UT Libraries, TACC and ITS offer storage and computational resources and consulting services to UT researchers in all disciplines that are using and/or creating data. During a one hour session, the Data Management @ UT team will provide information about the resources and consulting services available to help in the development and stewardship of research data.

Themes and available resources that will be discussed include:

  • Tools to create a data management plan
  • Main elements of a data management plan
  • Storage allocations available for the UT Austin community
  • Preservation and access options for your data collections
  • Linking your data to your publications
  • Relationship between IRB and Data Management Plan
  • Presenters:

    • Colleen Lyon, Digital Repository Librarian, UT Libraries
    • Angela Newell, Information Technology Services (ITS)
    • Maria Esteva, Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC)
  • When and Where:
    • Tuesday, June 16, 2015.  Held in POB 2.402 from 12-1pm.
  • Bring your lunch and your questions; dessert will be provided.
  • Please RSVP via TXCLASS: SP805, so we can provide enough refreshments.
