Abstract : In looking at the agenda for the seminar, it is obvious data management involves getting field and laboratory results in a form suitable for interpretation. To be more specific, I have prepared a list of what I have found to be the most important tasks involved in data management. The topics in the list are discussed in this paper as follows: (1) Assemble field and lab data in machine-readable form, (2) Assemble supporting data, (3) Enter data onto computer and convert it to proper format, (4) Check all information entered and correct errors, (5) Calculate values from observed data, (6) File printouts of data, (7) Develop and maintain programs and files, (8) Maintain logs showing availability of data, (9) Exchange data with others, and (10) Other.
