Following the 2011 announcement by the National Science Foundation (NSF) that they would begin requiring Data Management Plans with every funding application, the University of Houston Libraries explored ways to support our campus researchers in meeting this requirement. A small team of librarians built an online tool using a Drupal module. This tool includes informational content, an interactive questionnaire, and an extensive FAQ to meet diverse researcher needs. This easily accessible and locally maintained tool allows us to provide a high level of personalized service to our researchers.This poster will highlight the need for such a tool, the steps taken to create the tool and outcomes from researcher involvement.
