Breaking away from the usual format, this month I’ve decided to focus on a hot topic that should be on the minds of anyone who deals with science and technology researchers and organizations: the National Science Foundation (NSF) Data Management Plan (DMP). This new requirement will open the door to many new conversations with our users about how they manage their data and what we, as library and information professionals, can do to help preserve and disseminate their research data for future generations of researchers. You may use this column as a guide to getting started on developing your own handouts and training.
