The University of California Curation Center at the California Digital Library is working with other institutions to sponsor the new DMP Tool. According to the project website, the DMP Tool will help create, “ready-to-use data management plans for specific funding agencies, meet requirements for data management plans, get step-by-step instructions and guidance for data management plan , and learn about resources and services available at your institution to fulfill the data management requirements of their grants.”

In 2010 the University of California Curation Center at the California Digital Library released an article titled Merritt: An Emergent Micro-services Approach to Digital Curation Infrastructure. The article discusses their approach to digital curation called Merritt. They state that, “Merritt is an approach to digital curation based on the ideas of micro-services and emergent behavior. Merritt devolves technical infrastructure function into a set of independent, but interoperable, micro-services that embody curation values and strategies.”
The University of California Curation Center (UC3) has created Merritt, which is a new cost-effective repository service. Merritt lets the UC community manage, archive, and share digital content. It has a dark archive feature and uses data grid technology.
