ACRL Research Data Management Workshop

FREE One-day Workshop: "Building Your Research Data Management Toolkit: Integrating RDM Into Your Liason Work"

May 13, 2019

8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

University Center Panorama Room

University of Northern Colorado, Greeley, CO

The University of Northern Colorado Libraries is bringing the ACRL Research Data Management Roadshow to the Front Range. This day-long workshop is intended for liaisons with little or no knowledge of research data management—no experience required! Librarians and staff in administration, management positions, and technical services may also benefit from attending this workshop. Registration is free for all attendees; breakfast and lunch are provided.

Research data management (RDM) has emerged as a need among academic researchers, and liaisons are building skills in response. This workshop will help liaisons identify existing skills and mindsets that transfer to research data management services, and then create a learning plan for the RDM-specific knowledge needed to serve their subject disciplines. Tools, hints, and tricks will be shared that facilitate partnerships on campus with disciplinary faculty and other RDM service providers. You can learn more about this workshop on ACRL's website.

Presenters will be Megan Sapp Nelson, Professor of Library Sciences & Science and Engineering Data Librarian at Purdue University, and Sarah Wright, Life Sciences Librarian for Research at Cornell University.

Space is limited; register here by April 30, 2019 to reserve a spot.

Dissertation Prep & Writing Intensive Workshop

Welcome UNC doctoral students! The Dissertation Prep & Writing Intensive is designed to encourage you to begin, continue, or complete the writing of your proposal, dissertation, or capstone. Writing is hard work and it can leave you feeling isolated--but you are not alone. You are part of a support network that includes faculty, university services, and other doctoral students who can empathize with the obstacles and issues of dissertation authorship. This workshop will help you draw on this reservoir of expertise, experience, and UNC resources to complete you dissertation.

Material from past workshops can be mixed and matched to create your own customized Dissertation Prep & Writing Intensive. Additionally, a website with a Writing Toolkit, Meet Your Librarian information, and People to Know is available at http://libguides.unco.edu/WritingIntensive/home.

The Dissertation Prep & Writing Intensive is sponsored by the University Libraries and the Graduate School.
