Data Services

SBU Libraries Research Data Services is housed within the University Libraries Center for Scholarly Communication. We provide resources, consultation and support for all aspects of the data lifecycle, from planning your data management strategy during the proposal phase through preserving your data at the conclusion of your project. We are happy to partner with you on proposals and projects.
