Collecting and Capturing your Research Efficiently: The Digital Scholar "How to" Series Online
Taking the right steps at the start of a research project can make all subsequent work much easier. How you collect and capture the information that you need to do your research (your data) is one such step. This session looks at ways to organize what you collect and how to best capture it. We cover subjects from using forms for data capture, to file naming and recognizing the value of metadata. After this session, you may well see the world in rows and columns.
For the second half of the academic year, Digital Library services will be live streaming our Digital Scholar Series. Starting off with five sessions in the month of August, presenters from DLS will showcase some of the practices and tools to improve your Digital Scholarship.
These sessions are open to all postgraduate researchers and staff working within any field of study. The topics covered deal with the management of digital materials for teaching, learning and research (what some call data), touching on digital topics throughout the research lifecycle. These sessions are aimed at making working with data more efficient so as to give you less hassle and more time to focus on your research, teaching and learning.
All sessions will start at 12 pm with the topics and dates listed below. They will be hosted on MS Teams. After registering for the event, you will have the event details forwarded to your calendar. The sessions will last 45 minutes with an extra 15 minutes for any questions or discussions. The DLS team will be present to moderate the chat and to help answer questions as they arise.
