ETD Workshop Series: Storing Research - Understanding Your Options

The workshop will help students mindfully plan, choose, and document where they store their digital materials, so that they can make sure that they and others will have access to them in the future.
In this workshop, you will:
  • Understand the range of threats to storage stability in the digital environments you are using for your research outputs.
  • Learn how to weigh the pros and cons of different approaches to research content storage.
  • Gain familiarity with storage fundamentals, including the current and emerging storage options for digital research outputs.

About the ETD Workshop Series

Completing a thesis or dissertation is a major milestone for any graduate student, representing the culmination of years of research and writing. But if you only begin to manage its electronic assets when you turn in the completed product, it may be too late. Presented by the University Libraries and the Office of Graduate Education, the ETD (Electronic Thesis and Dissertation) Workshop Series encourages you to think about these issues earlier in your grad studies and provides you with the tools to manage and preserve your digital research.

The ETD Workshop Series offers three sessions, each representing a different aspect of electronic file management. Attendance at all sessions is not required, come to as few or as many as you like.

Registration is required at cmu.edu/graduate.

Location: Danforth Conference Room, CUC
