Introducing the New Research Data Management (RDM) Program Website

Screenshot of homepage As Service Lead of the Research Data Management (RDM) Program, I am very excited to announce the launch of the new RDM Program website! Since its launch in 2015, the RDM Program supports and advocates for campus researchers and their research data needs. In partnership with other campus research support units, we consult with researchers and research groups to understand their needs and connect them to systems and tools that facilitate their research goals.

A key aspect of building this site was to highlight the areas in which the RDM Program offers support for research data. From the Service Areas page, you can learn more about the six areas in which the RDM Program offers consulting, delivers training, and develops documentation for the UC Berkeley research community. These areas are: data classification & security, data collection, data management, data sharing, data storage & backup, and data transfer.

Additionally, the RDM Program sponsors and contributes to several events throughout the year, most notably Love Data Week and Women in Data Science (WiDS) at Berkeley. See content from previous years on the Events and Training page as well as the YouTube playlist of our recorded trainings!

By moving to the Open Berkeley platform, the RDM Program site now aligns with other campus websites and comes with enhanced security and accessibility features as well as Berkeley branding. Content from the previous RDM Program website has been moved – either to the new site or to the Research IT documentation site – or archived using the WayBack Machine.

Special thanks to: Tiffany Vo for her design and user experience expertise, Amy Neeser for helping develop and archive content, and the rest of the RDM Program team for their support. I hope you find our updated site useful in navigating the Berkeley research landscape and connecting with help! Let me know at if there is anything you want to see featured or if you have questions.
