Data Services available at MSU Libraries In-Person

This drop-in workshop is intended to offer an opportunity to ask about the various data services the Libraries make available and how we might be able to assist with your research, from proposal drafting to closeout.

The MSU Libraries offer a number of services to assist you with data acquisition, preparation, analysis, visualization and data management for your research project data. Data Services assists researchers with data and statistical resources across the entire research lifecycle, as both consumers and producers of data.

Our purpose is:

To provide guidance to faculty in the development and execution of research data management plans.

To connect faculty to distributed research data support services throughout the university.

To educate students, faculty, and staff about the importance of data management.

Research Data Management Guidance

Effective research data management is an active and ongoing process during the entire research lifecycle, from project conception to long after it is finished.

Best practices for research data management can

  • help you secure grant funding
  • enhance the ability to share data internally during a project
  • bring traditional library and archival expertise for the organization and care of digital information to your own personal research projects
  • create a data output that can become part of the scholarly record, earning recognition and citations
  • help you make efficient and effective use of research funding
  • Identify & Access Data and Statistics
  • Assistance identifying and facilitating access to data sets and statistics within our library collection and from outside resources
  • Each subject librarian will be familiar with statistical sources in the various disciplinary areas.
  • Data Acquisitions recommendations for data set purchases are welcomed and will be pursued contingent upon our Data Collection Development Policy
