Data Management Training for the Humanities - A Half-Day Workshop
Data Management Training for the Humanities is a half-day workshop to discuss how institutions might meet growing requirements for training in the management of research data within humanities research. The aim is to learn more about research data management training already taking place at UK universities, plans for such training, relevant scoping studies, and related experiences.
We are adopting a broad approach to data, taking it to mean not just structured information on computers, but the whole range of materials that researchers must assemble and analyse in order to produce their research outputs. This potentially includes, therefore, printed books, articles, and even handwritten notes, in addition to electronic sources and datasets. Although the focus is on data management training in the humanities, the workshop will hear experiences from other disciplines as well.
The workshop is being organized as part of the Sudamih Project (Supporting Data Management Infrastructure in the Humanities, http://sudamih.oucs.ox.ac.uk/), funded by the JISC and led by Oxford University Computing Services. The project seeks to develop tools and training that will enable researchers in the humanities to organize their information more effectively.
