WORKSHOP: Data Management & Data Services

UNC Charlotte Atkins Library’s Dataverse Network is available to publish, share, reference, extract, and analyze research data for our faculty and graduate students. It facilitates making data available to others: researchers and data authors get credit; publishers and distributors get credit; affiliated institutions get credit. Each Dataverse contains studies or collections of studies, and each study contains cataloging information that describes the data plus the actual data files and complementary files. Please join us at this presentation to learn about the library’s data management services and its data repository.   The presentation will present an overview of data management services and guidance the library can provide and will demonstrate the library’s data repository.
