1. Including Information Literacy Curriculum in Your Courses1

As your courses move forward, you may want to include information literacy skill-building into your curriculum, as appropriate for your discipline. Fogler Reference Librarians are able to assist with identifying concepts and designing assignments, as well as provide instruction in this area. Contact your subject librarian if you would like to discuss this.

2. Data Management Planning Workshop
Wednesday, February 5, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Fogler Library Classroom 1

Research data has value long after you publish an article. Where can you store it to comply with funder requirements? How can you share it with future collaborators, or store sensitive data securely? Use a data management plan and UMaine’s Advanced Computing Group (ACG) resources to organize the collection, analysis, and preservation of your research data.

At this workshop, learn about what ACG has to offer for all your research data compliance needs, including the Data Management Plan Tool (DMPTool), Maine Dataverse Network, and cloud data storage options—including Google Drive and Seafile—for handling your large data sets.

Laptops will be available for attendees who need to borrow one. This workshop is presented in collaboration with ACG. To attend online via Zoom, please contact
