UO Libraries to Offer Data Management Course in Spring 2013

The UO Libraries will be offering a new 1-credit seminar during the spring 2013 quarter, “Data Management,” taught by Victoria Mitchell. 

Students interested in collecting or generating data in the course of their research will learn how to manage data. The purpose of the course is to develop an understanding of the requirements for data management and to create a data management plan for a particular research project. Data management is an essential part of the research process, and data management plans have become a requirement for much grant-funded research. Topics covered include: intellectual property, file management, metadata, digital preservation and access. The course will review interdisciplinary differences, and assignments will be tailored to the research project of the individual student. In order to be successful, students should have a research project in mind and will complete the course with a data management plan for their project.
The course is scheduled to take place on Fridays, from 11:00-11:50 a.m. in Knight Library (144 LIB). The course numbers and CRNs are: LIB 407, CRN: 38001 ; LIB 507, CRN: 38002.
