Abstract: Slides from a presentation discussing the UNCG University Libraries' research data management services, which strive to best meet the needs of the campuses while also maximizing limited resources. At UNCG, librarians collaborate across departments to support targeted research data management needs on campus. We have developed this collaborative effort by building on the strengths of an existing multi-school institutional repository system (NC DOCKS: and a long running outreach and instruction program for secondary data discovery. This presentation discusses the scope and component pieces of the University Libraries' data management services, and the development of our service model and various associated activities, including support for data management planning, a series of workshops for graduate students created in collaboration with our Institutional Review Board, outreach and training efforts, and institutional repository integration. Presenters address specific roles, workflows, challenges, and lessons learned, and provide perspectives from both public and technical services. This presentation was delivered on July 22, 2016 as part of the Mississippi State University Libraries Scholarly Communication Summit: "The State of Data Services."
