Spots Still remain for Health Sciences Track of the Online Research Data Management Workshop April 15-18, 2019

There is still room for people interested in the health sciences version of this workshop.  Please register by April 12.

Do you create or use data in your research? Looking for tips and tools to better help you manage your research data, and preserve it for long-term use?

From April 15-18, the UW Libraries is offering Research Data Management Planning, an asynchronous online workshop for UW community members engaged in research with data. Topics will include getting started with data management planning, funder requirements for data sharing, metadata, tips to help keep you organized, sharing, archiving and preservation, and an introduction to tools and on-campus support to aid researchers.

Note: Spots still remain for the workshop aimed at health sciences researchers.  At this point, the version of the workshop designed for multiple disciplines outside of health sciences is full.  When you register for the class, please indicate that you’d like the health sciences version of the class.  Thank you!

Full course information and link to registration is below. Contact us with any questions.
