Margaret M Janz
As part of the Penn Libraries Research Data and Digital Scholarship group, Margaret works with researchers across the university to help them plan for data management to meet funder requirements and for their own organization. Margaret can help you write a data management plan, organize your data, and think through options for storing and publishing your data. She also helps researchers think about data collection and survey instrument design and craft messages for nonspecialists about their research.
Margaret was also a founding member of the Data Refuge project's first phase and maintains strong interest in open government data, open research data, and ways data can work with storytelling to affect change.
Margaret has been working in libraries for over 15 years. She holds a Masters of Library Science with a specialization in Chemical Information and a Bachelor of Science in Information Resources. She is currently pursuing a Masters of Arts in Natural Sciences and Environmental Education.
