How to Make Your Research Data Sing

Description
Want to learn skills that will boost your research and your career? What do you need to consider when you’re working with research data? What file formats and organization should you use? What documentation should accompany your data so that you (and others) can re-use it at a later date (or incorporate it with data collected by others) — possibly years from now? What are the current standards in your field for adding metadata to describe your data and prepare it for deposit in a disciplinary repository or in PDXScholar?

Date

Location
Library, Room 160
1st floor, across from the elevators
