 Join us online the afternoon of Wednesday December 14, 2022 for the 16th Research Data Roundtable, sponsored by the ACRL/NEC Research Data Services Interest Group (RDSIG). This event will feature a presentation from the providers of  the DMPTool at the University of California Curation Center (UC3). The DMPTool is a free online application that helps researchers create data management plans that comply with funder requirements. They will also discuss how the DMPTool will support the new NIH Data Management and Sharing Plan taking effect in January 2023. We will also have presentations featuring Megan Potterbusch, Research Data Steward of the Harvard Kennedy School and Julie Goldman from the Harvard Library Research Data Management Program on their experiences with the DMPTool. After the presentations we will have a Roundtable where attendees can engage with the content and share their own experiences or aspirations.
