Environment UW Libraries’ Data Management Workshop Series

The UW Libraries is offering a series of classes designed to help students involved in data-intensive research learn how to manage and protect their data, as well as consider other issues such as data sharing and reuse. All disciplines are welcome, as are all student levels. If you are a faculty member who supervises students who are involved in data-intensive research, please encourage them to register for this workshop series.

This 7-week series will be held on Wednesdays from 3:30-4:30pm in Odegaard Library, Room 220, beginning 1/22/14 (last class will be 3/5/14). Each session will feature a lecture, relevant readings, exercises to help illustrate concepts, and an accompanying Canvas site for simultaneous and future reference.

The 7 topics are:

  • Overview of Research Data Management
  • Types, Format and Stages of Data
  • Contextual Details Needed to Make Data Meaningful to Others (aka, Metadata)
  • Data Storage, Backup and Security
  • Legal and Ethical Considerations for Research Data
  • Data Sharing & Reuse Policies
  • Archiving and Preservation
