Whether you knew it or not, something big and brand new has come to the library catalog: Resource Description & Access, a.k.a. RDA. This new standard for information organization (a.k.a. cataloging) is the replacement for the Anglo-American Cataloging Rules that libraries all over the country, and in many other parts of the world, have been using ever since 1967. (For you younger colleagues, that was before both the Internet and microwave popcorn! As you might imagine, a few things in the library world have changed since then.)

You are invited to attend a workshop on the newly-available Data Management Planning (DMP) Tool. The workshop will take place Monday, Oct. 22 from 10-11am in the IC Classroom in Green Library.
Many funding agencies - including NEH Office of Digital Humanities and the NSF's Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences directorate - are now requiring data management plans to be included with funding requests. The Data Management Planning Tool (DMP Tool) puts at your fingertips all the information you need to write the data management plan for your next research grant proposal.
