Video: Research Data Matters

Fri, May 13, 2016 (All day) to Fri, July 1, 2016 (All day)

Why is research data management important and what is the impact of good data management practices? An introductory video released by the UC Libraries addresses these questions by incorporating the voices and testimonials of UC faculty.

The video is the first of a proposed series developed by the UC Libraries Data Curation Common Knowledge Group. It features UC Merced Vice Provost and Graduate Dean Marjorie Zatz and was produced by the UC Merced Communications video production team.

Viewership and feedback will be used to assess and inform future development of the series. Questions or feedback can be submitted directly to the project leads, Head, Digital Assets, Emily Lin ( and UC Riverside Engineering Librarian, Kat Koziar (

If you are a principal investigator preparing a grant proposal or developing your research project and would like help with data management planning, contact The Library would be happy to provide consultation for your needs.
