The Digital Library Services (DLS) department of UCT Libraries will be continuing our Digital Scholar Series in the first semester of 2023. Presenters from DLS will showcase some of the practices and tools available to enhance your research skills, with an ongoing focus on managing your research data efficiently.
These sessions are open to all postgraduate researchers and staff working within any field of study at UCT. The topics covered deal with the management of digital materials for research (what some of us call ‘data’) and touch on digital topics throughout the research lifecycle. The sessions are aimed at making your digital scholarship more efficient, so that your data gives you less hassle and you have more time to focus on your teaching, learning and research. Our primary focus in the first half of the year will be on topics covering the beginning stages of the research process, such as data management plans (DMPs) and best practises for efficiently capturing and managing research data.
After registering for the event, you will receive an email with a calendar invite attached. All sessions will start at 1 PM with the topics and dates listed below. The sessions will be hosted on MS Teams and will last 45 minutes, with an extra 15 minutes for questions or discussions. DLS staff will be present to moderate the chat and to help answer your questions as they come up.
