University Libraries will offer more than 20 workshops this semester on topics related to data management, research methods and practices such as evidence synthesis methodology, reparative research and geospatial data tools.
Some sessions, which will be led by Research Partnerships librarians, will be offered via Zoom. Others will be held in person at Love Library South on City Campus or the Dinsdale Family Learning Commons on East Campus. The workshops are primarily geared toward faculty and graduate students; however, undergraduates may be especially interested in the ArcGIS StoryMaps workshop. Registration is recommended and will be available via the department’s event calendar.
Two of the workshops, “Write a Successful NIH Data Management and Sharing Plan ” and “Creating a Data Management Plan,” will be offered monthly in September through November and be taught by either Leslie Delserone, associate professor of research data services and science librarian, or Scout Calvert, chair of research partnerships. These workshops focus on elements of the NIH data management sharing plan and strategies of research data management for internal use or to include in funding applications.
Other one-time workshops, taught by other Libraries faculty, include:
- A Crash Course in Research Data Management, Sept. 8, noon-1:30 p.m. via Zoom.
- Sharing Your Story with ArcGIS StoryMaps, Oct. 26, 1-2 p.m., LLS 224 (Witt Room).
