Digital data is growing at an exponential rate, and the work involved in managing that data is rapidly increasing as well. How can we ensure that our research data will still be available in a usable form in 5, 10, or 20 years? We will discuss why having a data management plan is important as well as key considerations and best practices for data management. Note: This class is also available online.
