Workshops

Spring 2017

File Naming - Hardin Open Workshop

Marina Zhang and Chris Childs

Have you ever accidently lost or deleted your old files? Have you ever had trouble locating the current version among multiple versions of your paper? Come and learn best practices on file naming conventions. File naming conventions are a set of rules that help you name your files in a consistent, logical, predictable way, allowing you to distinguish similar files from one another at a glance. With good file naming conventions, you will be able to access files without rethinking the process each time.

Data Management Planning - Hardin Open Workshop

Marina Zhang and Chris Childs

As a result of recent requirements to expand public access to the results of federally funded research, researchers in all disciplines are required to “better account for and manage the digital data resulting from federally funded research.” The purpose of this workshop is to explain research data management and its importance, help identify some common data management issues, and learn about best practices and resources that are available to assist researchers.
