Data Sharing and Storage

Instructions for Connecting to SWL Data Storage

  1. Bring a laptop or other wifi-capable device into B72
  2. Connect to the NASAttach wifi network
    • On a Windows machine, connect to the server, '\\' which should show up as 'DEEPSTORE'
    • On a Mac, go to the finder and hit Command-k, then enter in ''
  3. Open the 'lachat' or 'ic' folder as needed
  4. Copy the files that need, then disconnect from the wifi network

Data Management Plans

  • DMP Tool : Tool for making Data Management Plans
  • IEDA DMP Tool : Tool by IEDA (Integrated Earth Data Applications) for making DMPs

Library Guides

  • Cornell's Mann Library provides a great library guide for biogeochemists. We sure do like the information on library services, workshops, RSS feeds, and copyright information.
