As part of the UCLA Library's efforts to support scholarly communication and the research mission of the University, the UCLA Library assists students, staff, faculty, and researchers with data management across the full life cycle of their research projects. Librarians and staff from the campus libraries can provide subject-specific guidance tailored to individual researchers' data needs.
Planning ahead about how to manage research data ultimately saves time, ensures that data is properly documented and reproducible, and creates opportunities for collaboration. Additionally, many funding agencies require that grant proposals include a plan for how research data will be managed and shared. The Library's site provides information about best practices in data management, suggestions for getting started, and links to campus resources.
