2.5 Data Sharing and the UMB Data Catalog

You may also be thinking about sharing your data. And we always encourage you to start thinking about this as early as possible. We can help figure out the best repository for your data, and prepare it for sharing. Then– you can create a record in the UMB data catalog – this is our finding tool for UMB data sets, but it is not a repository itself. But Data catalog records provide extensive metadata about your dataset, and the records are indexed by google’s dataset search. It’s something you can share in a CV or dossier to let potential future employers know what you’ve been working on. This is also a great place to find data and potentially find collaborators here at UMB.
