Data Services

Do you need to write a data management plan for a grant proposal? Are you frustrated with disorganized research data? Are you organized but want to manage your data better? Data Services can help!

Data Services are a set of campus services that support UWM-generated research data from collection through preservation. Data Services were created in response to new funder requirements for data management and to support UWM’s ongoing research mission.


Data Management Plan Consultations
Data Services can help you navigate data management plan requirements, find example plans from your field, and provide feedback on your written plan. If you’ve never written a data management plan or if you simply want advice on your latest, contact the Data Services Librarian at for a consultation.
Data Management Training
Data Services currently offers training on data management and writing data management plans. We are also happy to address data management issues in a particular subject or for a particular course. Please contact the Data Services Librarian at for more information or to schedule a session.
