LCR is part of the overall University of Calgary re-entry strategy. We are working to restore some essential services as quickly as possible in a way that is safe for you - our users- and our staff and in the context of the overall campus re-entry plan. We will continue to offer our suite of online services and will also be expanding access to online books and resources. Virtual service hours today: 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM. 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Physical locations remain closed. You can return your books to the exterior book drop on the East side of the TFDL. More information on the Covid 19 page.

Data Management

Research Data Management Research data, whether made up of spreadsheets, interview transcripts, image collections, digital records, or other material is crucial to your research career


What is data management?

Proper data management will save you time and headaches at all stages of the research process. We can help with you creating a data management plan, providing best practices data management advice, making your datasets discoverable in data repositories, as well as with documentation and metadata standards.

What does data management include?

  • Designating responsibilities of all parties involved in performing the research.
  • Determining how data will be securely stored and backed up.
  • Utilizing file formats that allow for data re-use, sharing, and long-term access.
  • Creating documentation and standardized metadata to ensure collaborators and potentially other scholars can make use of your data.
  • Identifying how (or if) your data may be shared for verification, re-use, or other purposes.
  • Ensuring that any shared data does not reveal confidential information.
