Research Data Management

This toolkit offers guidance for researchers, librarians, and administrators on managing research data


Research Data Management Training Series and Discussion Group

Registration link:

Goal: Provide educational resources and a forum for shared experience in Research Data Management across SUNY System. Will be achieved through a flipped-classroom model, pairing speakers and live discussions with specific MOOC modules for additional self-paced learning.   

Intended Audience: Librarians and administrators interested in learning more about research data management. No experience required to participate. Participants with experience in research data, data publishing in shared repositories, institutional repositories, and data services are also welcome to participate and share their knowledge. 

Learning Outcomes: 

  • Provide a learning forum and open discussion for research data services in libraries 

  • Understand different research data lifecycle models and where librarians can engage with the research process   

  • Support creation of data management and sharing plans 

  • Plan for launching and managing data services within libraries and across institutions  

  • Identify research data partners on campus 

  • Build scaffolding and advocate for research data management at your institution with appropriate stakeholders 

  • Discover various platform tools within a larger data ecosystem 

This training series will complement a future ACRL-led event “Building Your Research Data Management Toolkit: Integrating RDM into Your Liaison Work” (Off-RoadShow Virtual Workshop) 

Content: Content from two MOOCs will be used for this series. There is no cost associated with either MOOC but you will need to register to access content required for specific weeks: 

  1. Research Data Management Librarian Academy (RDMLA) MOOC on Canvas  

  1. Research Data Management and Sharing MOOC on Coursera  

Bonus! Completing the full unit/week (with all assignments) in either MOOC will earn the participant badges within Canvas or Coursera. Certificates are available for completing the full course. There may be costs associated with a certificate charged by the individual platform. More information and details on earning certificates are available on each platform. 



All meetings are at 1pm unless otherwise noted. Suggested readings listed at individual event page. Participants can register for the whole series or individual events.
