Library Life Hacks: Boot Camps for Grad Students
Library Life Hacks workshops explore methods that today's scholars use to manage, visualize, analyze, and interpret data. These "Boot Camps" on Monday, October 12 (Columbus Day) & Wednesday, November 11 (Veteran's Day) offer several popular workshops together - attend one or all. Make it a full day of knowledge by attending the Lit Review How To sessions on the same days.
What is Data?
In this workshop we will define research data & data-related terms, learn common data formats, understand use agreements and restrictions, and identify library and campus services and resources related to data.
Data management refers to activities that support the long-term preservation, access, and use of data. In this short workshop, learn best practices for data management and discover the tools, people and resources GW Libraries can provide to help you.
GIS Data Basics
Come learn how you can integrate Geographic Information Systems into your research and discover the resources available at Gelman Library and beyond. This workshop will cover the basics of data discovery and display using ArcGIS software. Let it spark your cartographic imagination! Please note: this session takes place in Gelman Library, Room 300.
Uploading Your Electronic Thesis or Dissertation (ETD)
The writing is done. The citations have been cross checked. Your adviser has signed off. All that's left is to upload your electronic thesis or dissertation--but what does that really mean? This short workshop will introduce you to the interface for uploading your document and give you a heads up on what you will be asked during that process. Please bring your own computer.
All sessions will take place in Gelman Library, Room 219 except GIS Basics, which takes place in Gelman Library, Room 300. Kids off school for the day? Quiet and happily occupied offspring are welcome to attend.
