Join the IU Libraries for data management workshops throughout the fall semester. The workshops will cover how to write data management plans for grant proposals and how to visualize and manage your data. You can also contact the Science Data Management Librarian (firstname.lastname@example.org) to arrange for departmental and research group-focused workshops.
