Finding datasets for research

11am, Fielding Johnson, Ogden Lewis Seminar Room 3
One of the most common enquiries from researchers is “Where can I find data on my topic?”  This session provides advice on how to find datasets for your research. We will cover a range of subject areas, and also look at the specialist resources to which the Library provides access.

Research Data Management: looking after and managing your research data

11am, Bennett Lower Ground 5
Managing the data you produce during your research activity is becoming increasingly important, for your own personal use, in order to meet funders’ data management requirements, and journals are increasingly requiring submission of data underpinning peer-reviewed publications. Whatever your area of research is, you will be dealing with data in one form or another and this session will explore how to organize and describe your data, data storage and security, and sharing and publishing your data.
Please contact Selina Lock if you have any questions.
