The UC Davis Library is committed to help facilitate campus research. Since October 2018, the library has added a research support engineer position to provide more technical assistance on an array of data management topics, including; database design, architecting infrastructure, scripting (R, Python, NodeJS) and data collection methodologies. Among other considerations, potential projects are chosen to investigate common requirements among researchers across campus. This presentation will use a case study of historic agricultural experiments to highlight some of the issues and pitfalls for campus data projects and guide what short to medium term services the library can offer to provide the most value and help get researchers on the right data management course.
