Data management support from the NCSU Libraries

From NCSU Libraries: Funding agencies often require researchers to include data management plans (DMP) with their grant proposals and share articles and data resulting from funded research.

In addition to research consultation, visualization support, and research workshops, the NCSU Libraries provides free guidance to NC State faculty, staff, post-docs, and students on creating and implementing data management plans and meeting public access compliance requirements.  Our consultation includes advice on data types and standards for describing data, options for short-term storage and long-term preservation, and considerations for sharing research outputs and public access compliance.  For research projects that are already underway, our post-award checklist can help you follow your DMP and to keep your data safe and available for sharing and reuse.

International Travel Assistance Fund--Call for Applications (and potential for support from the College)


The Office of Global Engagement (OGE) has announced that it is time to submit applications for the International Travel Assistance Fund for 2017. As they note on their website, "International Affairs supports faculty and staff through an annual fund that provides $1,000 travel awards to encourage global engagement."

My office will match up to $1000 any college faculty member who applies for and receives this funding, provided that the project for which they are funded advances research and scholarship.
