The University Libraries’ Research Data Services Team, along with Liberal Arts Technologies & Innovation Services (LATIS), the Graduate School, and Office for the Vice President of Research (OVPR) and the Informatics Institute, are hosting a Research Data Management Camp aimed at graduate students from any discipline.
This two-day camp will give participants an understanding of strategies for data management and practical exercises for implementing best practices in their own work. With a combination of hands-on activities and break out sessions, the first day of the camp will dive into topics such as data inventory and research workflows, data collection, file naming, managing qualitative and mixed-media materials, ownership, preservation, and sharing. The second day of the camp will be a deep dive focus into tools for reproducible research, with time to ask questions and bring in current projects. The broad range of topics will likely be most helpful to first and second year graduate students who are just starting research projects, but graduate students of all experience levels are welcome.
The Research Data Management Camp runs from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on August 24th and from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on August 25th in Bruininks Hall. Breakfast and lunch will be provided on day one and a light breakfast will be provided on day two. Space is limited and is first come, first served. If you’re interested, register today!
