Research Data Management Best Practices - Tues 10/28, 1 pm

Got Data? Research Data Management Best Practices - Tuesday 10/28, 1:00 pm Jackson Library, Room 216, UNCG

No matter what kind of research you do, your data are key to your success. We tend to think of numeric data, but research data can take many different forms, including images, video, sound files, or textual data. Data management is the process of managing your data before, during, and after a research project. This ensures that your research is secure, promotes the reuse of your data by other researchers, and assures compliance with federal guidelines.

Come to this workshop to learn the best practices of research data management. All disciplines are welcome to attend. We will discuss why data management matters and share best practices. The session will be interactive and geared to the attendees' needs. All are welcome.

Presenter: Lynda Kellam, Data Services & Government Information Librarian, The University Libraries. For more information: Register at:
