At the start of the project

At the start of your project starts, work out who owns the data and how long it needs to kept. Ethical commitments and the consent you seek from your participants will affect what you can do with the data later, so consider potential data sharing and re-use scenarios well before data is collected and acquired. The Library can help you with conducting a Literature Review, provide you with delivery of material not held by the Library, as well as help in searching databases and other information sources. Contact your Librarian for assistance.
