This article describes UMass Amherst Libraries data management workshops and online resources developed for graduate students. Although students respond favorably to general “Data Management Basics” workshops, they offer suggestions for improvement and request discipline-specific examples, tools, and resources to augment the general information presented. In response, the Libraries’ Data Working Group aims to develop both broad-based, discipline agnostic workshops as well as on-demand, discipline-specific workshops.

Keywords: data management, data management training, graduate students, university libraries
