Data Management for Humanities
Research data management education strives to provide guidance on how researchers can effectively manage their data to increase the scholarly impact from their research. However, guidelines for data management may vary significantly across domain areas. All domain areas engage with data in some manner, with the caveat that the physical form of these data may differ visually and structurally. Researchers in the humanities engage with many unique forms of data, including photographs, film, literature, ethnographies, and audiovisual materials, all with their own considerations for how to effectively manage them. This workshop will provide data management tips and tips specifically aimed at the humanities from all levels (students, staff, and faculty), including how to clean data, develop file-naming schemes, and store your data securely.
As we will be exploring several online tools and resources which aid in data management, it will be helpful (but not required) for participants to bring a laptop to the workshop if one is available to them.
