We’ve harped about how data management is the next (I’d say logical) frontier for library services, and invariably whenever I hear this reaffirmed, there is one tool that is synonymous with those efforts: DMPTool.
I’d previously described DMPTool as a resource that “lets institutions and researchers create boilerplate templates, which are then customizable for diverse projects,” and after feedback from librarians the folks at the California Digital Library/UCLA have developed a series of 15 webinars to orient users to the DMPTool and data management in general.
The first webinar, “Introduction to the DMPTool” is tomorrow, May 28 at 10 am Pacific Daylight Time and will run for an hour. Should you have a scheduling conflict – fear not! All webinars will be recorded and available online later. The webinar series will run through fall 2013, and details and registration links for the first several are in the table below:
