Find tools and services that help you in the middle of your project including data set descriptions, storage, and advanced computing.
Describing your work
A data management plan includes data set descriptions. Selecting a metadata standard is often based on adhering to requirements from your funding agency, publisher, or other disciplinary standards. These include describing basic properties of your data, assigning keywords, tags, and terms to provide access points and preparing for long-term preservation.
Learn more on about metadata in the Digital Repository Library Guide and how you can better organize and describe both your publications and data sets.
