Description: 

Today’s archives and library leaders require the knowledge, skills, and competencies focused on in this workshop to respond effectively to the growing—and increasingly complex—data management needs of their institutions! You’ll explore the obligations of researchers to manage and preserve their data, the attributes of data that contribute to the complexity of archiving data, and the range of tools and services available to support data curation standards and best practices. Although the focus in this workshop is on social science data, the majority of issues are applicable to much of the data produced in other disciplinary domains.

Participants may choose to bring a laptop with wireless Internet connection to independently explore the tools mentioned during the workshop.
