All About the DATA

In the few months that she has been at Carnegie Mellon University, our new Data Services Librarian, Lisa Zilinski has collaborated with the Engineering Librarians in outreach to researchers in our College of Engineering.  Lisa has helped to answer a number of questions about data management needs. 
Whether you have small or large data sets, would like assistance with a required plan, or want ideas on how the University Libraries can help, please contact us:


Did you get your flu shot yet? Did you get your ORCID ID yet?

Open Researcher and Contributor Identification

Dear CIT Faculty, Grad students, Researchers:

"Barcode" yourself so that your scholarly output is made easier to find.

This Fall semester 2014, the University Libraries are leading an initiative to encourage every College of Engineering researcher to acquire an ORCID ID.

What is this?  See the FAQ's at:  ORCID initiative @ CMU

Get your ORCID logo today.


Do you need a standard?

Carnegie Mellon has entered an agreement with TechStreet to purchase standards that you need for your courses and your research.  Please submit your requests to sciref@andrew.cmu.edu.

Speaking of standards, consider applying for IEEE Standards Education Grants

IEEE Advancing Technology for Humanity
