ATTENTION: Grant-funded Researchers, Depositors, and Potential Depositors:

AILLA Requirements

animal If you plan to deposit at AILLA any materials that will be collected, digitized or organized as part of a grant-funded research project, you must complete the following steps:

  1. Contact the AILLA Manager, at least one month before your grant due date and send her the following information:
    • Title and description of your project, including the names of all (Co-)PIs,
    • A draft of the Data Management Plan (DMP),
    • The name of the grant you are applying for, including if it is a Senior grant, a Fellowship, or a Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant (DDRIG), and
    • The link to the call for proposals for the grant.
  2. If you are required to submit a budget as part of your Senior grant or DDRIG, please plan to include an 8% service fee in your budget to defray the costs associated with curating, ingesting, and permanently storing your collection at AILLA. Please contact the AILLA manager with questions.
  3. Once you know the status of your grant application (approved or denied), you must send this information to the AILLA Manager for planning purposes. If your grant is approved, please contact AILLA regarding your time line so that the AILLA staff can plan the AILLA deposit queue accordingly.
  4. We will NOT be able to accept any data deposits during AILLA's technology upgrade. After the upgrade is complete, AILLA will have a new deposit procedure that all depositors will be asked to follow. The new procedure will be posted on the Depositor Information page (approximately in December of 2015).

Data Management Plan (DMP)

animal Many granting agencies, like NSF, NEH, NIH, IMLS, etc., now require researchers to submit a DMP as part of their grant proposal application. Researchers might find the information found at the following links useful for creating a DMP:

  • There is a concise article about data management plans on Wikipedia that includes links to other websites.
  • The DMPTool provides DMP requirements and templates for several specific funding agencies and programs.
  • The University of Minnesota has helpful information about Creating a Data Management Plan.
  • This is a sample DMP that gives suggestions for key elements to include.
