Noon - 1pm, Thursday, September 23rd

DMPTool is a powerful online tool for creating, managing, and sharing data management plans. DMPTool includes templates and advice for most major funding agencies, as well as useful collaboration and reviewing tools.

Boxed Lunch: Data Management Plans
12:30 - 1:30pm, Thursday, October 26th
Center for Teaching & Technology, Henderson Library 1303 K/M


Many funding agencies and publishers now require that research data be made publicly available. We will discuss the basics of data management planning, sharing, and archiving, with emphasis on resources and supports available to all campus researchers (faculty and students) through the Zach S. Henderson Library. Boxed lunch and beverages will be provided for registered participants. 


Lunch-N-Learn: Researchers’ Rights as Authors: Know and Protect Your Copyrights
Noon - 1pm, Wednesday, November 29th
Library Conference Room, 3rd Floor


Many publishers will ask you to transfer some or all of your copyrights to them. This isn't always in your best interest, and there are alternatives. Protecting your copyright ensures your ability to disseminate your work through open-access repositories like Digital Commons @ Georgia Southern, which expands the reach of your research. Learn about your copyrights and how to protect them throughout the publication process. Dessert and beverages will be provided.

For more information, contact the Digital Commons Team at (912) 478-4056 or A member of the Digital Commons Team will contact you as soon as possible during regular business hours.
