Find The Best
For Your Research
Keeping current with new research in your field can be a challenge. In this workshop, you’ll learn strategies and tools to help you stay up-to-date with the published literature. We’ll cover: How to create saved search alerts for new articles and dissertations on your topic, how to set up Table of Contents alerts for your favourite journals, how to find out when a key article has been cited by someone else, how to use social media tools such as blogs and Twitter to hear the buzz around new research. This hands-on session will be held in a computer lab but you are welcome to bring your own laptop.
How do you manage your research data? Join us for a research data management planning workshop designed to help you incorporate best practices for data management into your own work. We will address such questions as: What file naming standard should I use? What is metadata, and how will it help me manage my data? What's a data repository, and which one should I use? Do I need permission to share my data? In addition, we will discuss critical components of data management planning, provide hands-on practice with methods to name and organize files, review data management resources, and give you a framework to develop your own data management plan. We welcome all researchers; faculty, postdocs, graduate students, and others.
