Tutorials

A more formal presentation/lecture, where someone wants to impart information to many people.

Wrap-up Session

Special Events

1) DISC-UK DataShare Workshop

Data Requirements and Digital Repositories, 2-5pm, Thursday, 30 July.

This workshop will be based upon the DISC-UK DataShare project's Policy-making for Research Data in Repositories: A Guide. The guide is intended to be used as a decision making and planning tool for institutions with digital repositories in existence or in development that are considering adding research datasets to their digital collections. It also can help articulate the benefits of sound data management practices as well as the goals of data sharing and long term access.

This will be an interactive workshop format, taking advantage of the experience of the attendees to talk through decision-making for a hypothetical repository scenario. The workshop was piloted with positive evaluations at the IASSIST conference in Tampere, Finland in May, 2009.

The policy decisions that are made by the group during the workshop will be entered into the OpenDOAR policy tool to create a complete set of policies as a final output.

Facilitated by Robin Rice, Stuart Macdonald, University of Edinburgh; Luis Martinez-Uribe, Jane Roberts, Sally Rumsey, University of Oxford; Tanvi Desai, London School of Economics; Harry Gibbs, University of Southampton.

2) DCC Associates Network Workshop

Digital Curation 101 'Lite' 10am - 1pm, Friday 31 July

Research Councils and funding bodies are increasingly requiring evidence of adequate and appropriate provisions for data management and curation in new grant funding applications. This half-day workshop delivered by the Digital Curation Centre is aimed at researchers and those who support researchers and want to learn more about how to develop sound data management and curation plans. The workshop will provide a brief introduction to digital curation, the range of activities and roles that should be considered when planning and implementing new projects, and an overview of tools that can assist with curation activities.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • explore how digital curation can support and safeguard your research
  • explore the digital curation lifecycle
  • identify the processes and activities involved in good practice for research data management
  • be aware of the free services and tools available
