In an effort to support the University of Houston's goal of becoming a Carnegie-designated Tier One research university, several science librarians within the Department of Liaison Services have undertaken a study to assess current data management practices on campus. The goal of this study was to determine if data management needs are being met on campus and how the library might help meet those needs. We found that rather than physical storage capacity, researchers need assistance with funding agencies' data management requirements, the grant proposal process, finding campus data-related services, publication support, and targeted research assistance attendant to data management.
