Data collected for research that is funded by many grant agencies is now considered a public good and researchers are often required to make their data openly accessible. Journal publishers also are requiring authors to publish data used in articles for reproducibility. Join us as we discuss issues such as FAIR Data Principles, data curation practices, GIS data professional development needs, funding mandates for data management plans and how these provide opportunities for libraries to assist researchers in the research data life cycle. About TCDL 2020: Texas Digital Library originally planned for an in-person event for our annual conference, the Texas Conference on Digital Libraries (TCDL). Due to public health concerns and the rapid spread of COVID-19, TDL made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person conference on Friday, March 13, 2020. Prior to cancellation, nearly 80 proposals were submitted, many of which were accepted. TDL rescheduled a number of events to an online format, and materials from those events make up the bulk of this collection.
