Thursday, February 15 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

As more funders and publishers are now mandating data sharing in repositories, the process of identifying the appropriate repository for your specific data types can feel overwhelming.

Join Sarah Swanz from University Libraries and Seonyoung Kimfrom Becker Medical Library for an informative session on choosing a repository for your data types and how to properly prepare your data and associated documents for submission into data repositories.
