Services

We help MIT faculty and researchers manage, store, and share data they produce.

Assistance with creating data management plans

Many research funders have requirements for data sharing and data management plans. We can help you to create these plans, assess the data management needs of your project, and help you to identify data management solutions.

Individual consultation

We are available to help you, your lab, or center understand your data management needs and recommend best practices for keeping your data usable, now and into the future. Email data-management@mit.edu to request a consultation.

Virtual drop-in help hours

During the Fall and Spring semesters, we hold virtual help hours via Zoom. No appointment necessary. Simply log into the posted Zoom room during designated help hours to talk to one of our data management staff. Note, MIT touchstone authentication is required to join.

Virtual help hours will resume in September 2022.

Virtual and in-person consultations also remain available by appointment. Email data-management@mit.edu to make a request.

Workshops

Our workshops teach you how to manage your data more efficiently and help you to share your data with others. See a schedule of upcoming workshops.

MIT DOI Service

The MIT DOI minting service allows MIT community members seeking to establish a repository to work as clients of MIT Libraries through Data Management Services (DMS) to create DOIs for their repository at no cost. Learn more about the MIT DOI Service.
