Two data management events will be held in the library during this week.

1. Love Your Data Pop Up in BIDS (Doe 190) Tuesday, February 9th from 1-3 pm

Stop by the Pop Up to learn how to create a data portfolio to showcase your skills, get free access to unlimited cloud storage, or play a round of Data Bingo - you might win a prize! Also available at the Pop Up: one-on-one data advisory services, help finding data for your next project, recommendations for analysis and tools, and much more!

2. Out of the Archives, Into your Laptop Workshop (Doe 308A) Friday, February 12th from 2-3:30 pm

This workshop will focus on capturing visual and manuscript materials, but will be useful for any researcher collecting research materials from archives. Topics will include smart capture workflows, preserving and moving metadata, copyright, and platforms for managing and organizing your research data, The workshop will be co-presented by Mary Elings (Bancroft Library), Lynn Cunningham and Jason Hosford (Art History Visual Resources Center), and Jamie Wittenberg and Camille Villa (Research IT).

This campaign is a partnership between the Library, Research Data Management, Research IT, bConnected, Bancroft, Digital Humanities, ETS, and BIDS.
