Seminar: October 26 Data Management for Scientists

Data management for scientists: how to reduce your workload, reuse your ideas, recycle your data


You are invited to a  special seminar by Dr. Carly Strasser, from the California Digital Library

Wednesday, October 26, 2011 at 3:30 pm in Earth & Marine B214

“It is rare that scientists are formally taught about good data management practices.  Instead we develop our own systems for filing documents, arranging data sheets, handling versions, and documenting analyses that are often unique and unintelligible to others.  In this talk, I will focus on the common mistakes that scientists make, and how to avoid them. I will cover best practices for data management, which will facilitate data sharing, reuse, and archiving in the future.”

This event is in honor of Open Access week, and is brought to you by the University Library.
