Research Data Inventory

Posted on May 19, 2011 in Uncategorized

This is the home page for the Research Data Inventory.

If you create or manage research data here at the University, then please complete the 10-question form. It will take you less than two minutes. I promise.

Research data abounds across the University of Notre Dame. It comes in many shapes and sizes, and it comes from many diverse disciplines. In order for the University to support research it behooves us to know what data sets exist and how they are characterized. This — the Research Data Inventory — is one way to accomplish this goal.

The aggregated results of the inventory will help the University understand the breadth & depth of the local research data, set priorities, and allocate resources. The more we know about the data sets on campus, the more likely resources will be allocated to make their management easier.

Complete the inventory, and tell your colleagues about it. Your efforts are sincerely appreciated.
