The California Digital Library received a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) last year to develop education and outreach materials for librarians surrounding the DMPTool, a service that helps researchers create and manage data management plans. As part of this grant, the DMPTool Partners are running a DMPTool Webinar series that will cover topics related to data curation, data management, and using the DMPTool to promote these topics. 

Check here for the webinar schedule & information (updated frequently): http://blogs.library.ucla.edu/dmptool/webinar-series/

A few things to note:

  • The first webinar will be on Tuesday, May 28. We plan to present on Tuesdays, with current plans for ~15 webinars. The series will go into Fall 2013. 
  • All webinars will be recorded and made available for viewing afterward.
  • The webinar schedule depends on presenters’ availability (hence the TBD dates).
  • We are always interested in new webinar ideas; please send them to Carly Strasser (carly.strasser@ucop.edu) or leave them as a comment on the webinar page.
  • We plan to collect these webinars and make them available as a set. We then hope to create a short course in Data Management with the DMPTool that will offer certification for librarians as “DMPTool Experts” –we are still working on the title!

 Please circulate widely – the webinar series for anyone interested in promoting and/or using the DMPTool!
