Have questions about your research?
We can help!
As part of the UCLA Library's efforts to support scholarly communication and the university's research mission, it assists students, staff, faculty, and researchers with data management across the full life cycle of 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.
Consultation and Instruction Services
Library staff have expertise in a variety of areas related to research data management and are available to provide instruction, consultations, and hands-on assistance. Faculty, staff, and researchers can also request classes and workshops tailored to their groups' needs. Topics for one-on-one consultations and group instruction include but are not limited to:
- General data management
