Introduction to Data Management for Undergraduate Students: Resources at Illinois

This guide covers the basics and best practices for data management for individuals who are new to the research and data-collecting process.

Savvy Researcher Workshops

The Library's Savvy Researcher workshop series brings information professionals together with graduate students and faculty to explore topics related to research and academic success. Some workshops are tool-based, some focus on a particular library resource, and others are topical, but the goal of all is to help you understand and use the library efficiently and effectively. Research Data Service offers five Savvy Researcher workshops!


The Research Data Service website has full descriptions, dates, and materials for their workshops. Each of these workshops are available by request for research groups or can be run as a personal consultation. Contact the Research Data Service to request a custom workshop or get more information.
