Technology for Research: Collaboration and Sharing

  • Faculty & Staff

There are many ways to share data and collaborate; some are more useful than others. It's usually a good idea to consult with your colleagues and your LSP regarding approaches most appropriate for your needs.

Data Repositories

If you need to share data repositories with colleagues, consider a data repository service. These are particularly useful if you will need to provide public access to research data in the future.

As always, consult with your Local Support Provider (LSP) regarding the tools most appropriate for your needs.
