Speaker: Dr. Kristin Briney, Data Services Librarian, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Description: Most researchers are not trained on how to manage digital data, let alone deal with the data policies, digital preservation, and data sharing systems that are a data curator’s main concern. While curation is important, there are some very practical things that any researcher can do to make their data safer and more organized. This talk will cover these fundamentals of data management, including: file naming and file organization conventions, storage and backup best practices, keeping good documentation, and promoting future file usability. These practices will help the average researcher with their data but are also useful to anyone with digital files.
