The Merrill-Cazier Library is the point-of-contact at USU for data management information. The Library has created a web site to help researchers learn about and plan for the management of data resulting from research projects.

Topics covered include roles and responsibilities, metadata, sharing, long-term storage, sensitive data, file formats, research products, Federal agency requirements, training resources, and ORCID information. A researcher can also access the DMPTool from this web site.

The Research Data Management Services site can be accessed at To set up a consultation regarding research data management and/or storage, please email a librarian at
