ETD Workshop Series: Introduction to Version Control

This workshop will expose students to version control processes to help them manage changes to their files over time. Version control can help track your revision history, including when, why, and by whom changes are made.
In this workshop, you will:
  • Understand that your research files will change over time
  • Learn to use naming/storage conventions to “version” your research files, making it  easier to know your research history 
  • Gain familiarity with software tools that can help you with versioning, particularly when  you’re collaborating on documents with others

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.
