The UCR Library is an active participant in getting grants for the University and its researchers.

The campus-wide Proposal Development Collaborative Group includes a librarian who coordinates information for research grant proposals about library services supporting data management, open access, proposal development, and funder requirements.

Research Data Consultations

Data management plans are becoming a standard requirement for grant proposals. You can consult with a librarian for assistance creating data management plans, finding and acquiring data sets, finding appropriate data repositories, and how to use UCR Dash, the institutional data repository. 

UCR Dash

UCR Dash is an institutional data repository that allows UCR researchers to easily share research data while fulfilling funder requirements. All records created in UCR Dash are searchable, indexed in Scopus and Thomson-Reuters Data Citation Index, and provided a unique Digital Object Identifier (DOI). UCR Dash may be used as a permanent archive with stable URLs.
