**Data Management in transition: Strategies for when you graduate**
Research and creative work doesn't end with degree completion; however, access to many of the data storage tools and software that have supported that work changes when students become alumni. This workshop will help graduate students navigate questions about whether they can take their data and materials with them when they leave the university, and if so, how to do it.
**This workshop will cover:**
- The University policies that guide ownership of data
- Access changes to storage, software, and services that happen upon
- Strategies and tips for ensuring data are accessible and
understandable long after graduation
- How to make a plan to ensure a smooth transition for your data and
materials between graduate school and your next endeavor
**To be successful, you should:**
- Be a graduate student at the University of Minnesota at least a year
into your program (it never hurts to plan early!), or who is nearing
the end of your program.
- Have a research project (part of a dissertation or thesis) that has
generated data or materials that you want to keep track of after you
leave. This can include collaborative projects that will continue at
UMN after graduation.
