Research Data Management

Meet the Research Data Steering Group...

Research Data Steering Group's (RDSG) goal is to improve coordination and outreach of Library services for research data management needs of University of Delaware faculty, researchers, and students. The RDSG focuses specifically on research data: its management, description, sharing and preservation.

Whether you are just beginning your research or have been working on it for the past 15 years, RDSG can meet with you to discuss your specific data needs. Email lib-rdsg@udel.edu or fill out the RDSG Consultation Request Form to schedule a consultation.
