12 Division of Research Working with the Division of Research DOR was overworked and understaffed! DOR was concerned about being prepared to provide DMP expertise for researchers DOR was eager to work with the library!!!

13 How did the DOR help? The DOR provided the project team with a list of all NSF and NIH grant-funded projects for fiscal year What were we looking for? Large grants Both individual & group projects A wide cross-section of disciplines

14 Campus-wide Data Management Assessment A Pilot Study Who did we interview? – Targeted: PIs of 9 NSF & 5 NIH funded projects – Completed Interviews: PIs of 7 NSF & 3 NIH projects – Additional Interviews: 1 Co-PI, 1 Post-Doc, 1 RA
