The Claire T. Carney Library has partnered with Computer & Information Technology Services (CITS) and Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) to assist members of the campus community manage their research data, and this workshop series is one part of that initiative. First we will show a broad overview of what data management is and show you a tool (DMPTool) you can use to deposit your plans for managing your research data. Next we will take a look at what metadata is and play with a tool (TeX) you can use for document formatting. Last we will work with a tool (OpenRefine) which will curate your messy data and play around with theory on version controls and backlogs.
The class will be taught in two sequences. The first sequence is for faculty and staff only and is sponsored by the Office of Faculty Development. The second sequence is open to faculty, staff, students, and the public. You do not need to attend every class in a sequence, and faculty/staff may attend from a mix of sequences. For more information please visit the Data Workshop Wiki or contact Zac Painter, Engineering & Data Services Librarian.
