Welcome to the UMassD Data Management Workshop Wiki!
This wiki space will serve as the course page for the workshop series in data management topics, sponsored by the Library. The Library has partnered with CITS and SPA to assist members of the campus community in
managing their research data
, and this workshop series is one part of that initiative.
What are we Learning?
we will show a broad overview of what data management is and show you a tool (DMPTool) you can use to deposit your plans for managing your research data.
we will take a look at what data is and learn about the contextual details needed to make your data meaningful. We will also learn to use a tool to enable you to extract and wrangle your data, OpenRefine.
(Please have OpenRefine installed on your laptop before the class begins.)
we will learn about short-term data storage and security before transitioning to long-term data archiving and preservation. We will also learn to use a tool to enable you to manage your documents through a process called version control, Git.
(Please have Git installed on your laptop before the class begins.)
we will find out about legal and ethical issues regarding data, and about specific data sharing tips and tricks. We will conclude with a discussion about the Open Movement.
When are we Learning?
The class will be taught in one sequence open to faculty, staff, students, and the public. You do not need to attend every class in the sequence. You are requested to bring your own laptop for each session, and to install all necessary software ahead of time. Please register on the
