Data Management

The NCSU Libraries can assist across all phases of the research data lifecycle. We help prepare data management plans (DMPs) for grant proposals, consult on best practices for storage and preservation, and help optimize sharing and discovery of data.  We work with OITand SPARCS to advance research at NC State.


A good data visualization can expose new patterns and relationships in your data and help you communicate about it more clearly. NCSU libraries can help you:

Visualization Spaces

The Libraries provides spaces and technologies for high-resolution, immersive, 3D, and interactive displays of research data. We provide boilerplate facilities descriptions for inclusion in grant proposals. Contact us for more information and assistance.

The library provides access to a wide range of data resources and services for the campus community. Librarians are available to assist researchers in finding and acquiring data, using GIS software, and managing research data. The library also provides a variety of data visualization spaces and technologies.
