The purpose of this webinar is to provide an introduction to developing restricted-use data support services. We will cover why data is restricted use, what types of restricted-use data agreements you could encounter, university/research administration involvement and support, computing and physical location security, media storage and security, and publication output restrictions. The webinar will provide several illustrations of (a) applications; (b) step-by-step example of how a restricted-use project is managed; and (c) gotchas to avoid. The webinar is appropriate for a wide range of experiences and expertise including university administrators, researchers, staff who serve a research unit, and librarians who serve an entire campus.

  • Lisa Neidert provides restricted-data support at the Population Studies Center (PSC) at the University of Michigan. There are 48 active restricted-data contracts at PSC ranging from familiar social science data providers to less familiar organizations. The focus of this webinar will be on what to keep track of and your partners in the enterprise (researchers, and technical and administrative personnel). 
  • Jennifer Darragh is the Data Services and Sociology Librarian at Johns Hopkins University, and restricted-data projects coordinator for the Hopkins Population Center (HPC). Jen manages the Milton S. Eisenhower Library Restricted Data Room. From this webinar, you will learn that restricted-use data support can be offered at different levels, and find one that works best for you and your institution. 
  • Andrew Proctor is responsible for processing applications for restricted data for the Data Sharing for Demographic Research (DSDR) project within ICPSR at the University of Michigan. Currently, there are over 30 restricted studies available through the DSDR project. Andrew handles technical and user support for researchers with active restricted-data agreements in addition to assisting new applicants using ICPSR's restricted-data application system.
