Copyright Status / Data Ownership

Sensitive Data

Data deposited into the Digital Collections should not contain protected health information or personally identifiable information.

Scheduling an Initial Consult

We would like to schedule a consultation to assist you through the process of depositing your data. During this meeting, we aim to exchange information about your data and our repository to ensure that our services could meet your data needs. After the initial meeting, we suggest a structure for displaying your digital object(s) and begin to request metadata. This latter step is typically carried out over electronic communications, depending on the complexity of your data.

Please indicate dates and times you would be available for an initial meeting with our consultation team.

If you have a preference for meeting location, please indicate. Note that conference rooms equipped with large screen monitors or projectors are available in both library buildings (Biomedical Library and Geisel) and can be reserved by the RDCP.
