Research Data Management 101 for Humanists
Humanists work with various media, content and materials (sources) as part of their research. These sources can be considered data. This workshop will introduce data management practices for humanities scholars to consider and apply throughout the research lifecycle. Good data management practices pertaining to planning, organization, documentation, storage and backup, sharing, citation, and preservation will be presented through a humanities lens with discipline-based, concrete examples. During the workshop, participants will also engage in discussions with their peers on data management concepts as well as learn about one specific tool as a method to assess how tools can enable specific data management practices. The tool explored in this workshop will be Tropy - an open source image management tool.
While general good data management practices are relevant across disciplines, participants working specifically within the humanities are the intended audience for this workshop.
This workshop is eligible for 2 hours of Graduate School RCR Credits.
