Research data management is an aspect of research activity found in all stages of the research life-cycle, from idea conception through proposal writing to generating results, publication, curation and preservation. The Drexel Libraries raises awareness of research data management components and relevance to research output among the Drexel Community. As part of the University’s research support infrastructure, the Drexel Libraries offers services to strengthen Drexel's connections to global scholarship and helps surface Drexel research output to a larger audience while increasing the Drexel communities' knowledge of research data management requirements.
