The implementation of Coastal Carolina University’s Data Management Services program is explored in this presentation. Our library continued to see growth in data management support requests from researchers, so we felt the need to programmatically develop data management services to serve those needs. We assembled a Data Management Services Working Group to examine what types of services were being offered at other M1 institutions. A research data management life cycle was then developed to serve as a standard framework. The services we currently offer were then integrated with those we knew our faculty wanted. We also explored services apart from the life cycle, such as education, training, and collaborations with internal and external stakeholders. Initially we plan to offer services similar in scale to other M1 institutions. Based on adoption and growth, we may explore the expansion of services to those offered at larger research institutions.
