Navigate UW research resources with new Researcher Toolkit

The Researcher Toolkit is designed to help UW–Madison faculty, staff and student researchers navigate the local research resources available to assist them with each phase of their research project, from planning to publishing and close-out. To do this, the toolkit aggregates and organizes our local campus research support resources in order to make it easier to discover and access the help that researchers need. The Researcher Toolkit was formerly the Research Project Resource Guide (RPRG) and is a joint project between WID, the Data Science Hub, the UW–Madison Libraries, and DoIT.

The Toolkit is organized around the research data lifecycle. Users can navigate through the stages of the lifecycle to find highlighted resources that are particularly relevant to each stage as well as tailored lists of all available resources that may be useful.

The Researcher Toolkit Team wants to ensure they are continuing to add relevant resources and that the Toolkit is inclusive of all disciplines. You can suggest useful resources or services via the “Feedback” tab on the Toolkit website or contact the Researcher Toolkit Team at
