This workshop will take a deep dive into data publishing. Attendees will learn how to best prepare their data to be interpreted and reused by others. We will also explore repositories and the attributes that you should use to determine where to publish data based on type and funder or publisher requirements. This workshop is designed for graduate students in the physical and life/health sciences.
Attendees will learn about data management best practices throughout the research lifecycle. The workshop will cover the most crucial components of how to tackle writing a data management plan; how to best achieve transparency and reproducibility for the long-term through metadata and documentation; and how to approach publishing and archiving data for later discoverability and use. There will also be time to get answers for your data and active storage questions.
Join us for an introduction to the California Digital Library's Data Management Planning Tool (DMPTool), an interactive, online 'wizard' that guides scholars through creating a data management plan for organizing, managing, and preserving their data. The DMPTool is regularly recommended by RDM programs nationally. The workshop will offer an overview and demo of the tool, followed by examples of how it has been used for Humanities research projects on campus.
For librarians, archivists, and researchers who gather a large number of images in their work or in visits to the archives, storing, organizing and publishing those materials can be challenging. This workshop will introduce the free Adobe Bridge software for local image organization, as well as Shared Shelf, an online digital asset management system that can publish exhibits with Omeka. We will be joined by Lynn Cunningham and Jason Hosford of the History of Art Visual Resources Center.
Your article’s been accepted, but where does your research data end up? Where should it be published, and who can reuse it for their own studies? This workshop covers why and how to publish and license your research data. We’ll address:
Learn the best practices for using Box and bDrive to manage documents, files and other digital assets. The presenters will address:
- The personal use of both tools.
- The collaborative use of both tools (including control permissions, special purpose accounts, pushing and retrieving files).
- How to utilize the various desktop applications that accompany Box and Drive.

Across campus, researchers face an increasingly complex set of requirements to protect their research data. While many researchers have developed innovative approaches to accomplish their research, others encounter significant obstacles. Campus support and guidance for research on these kinds of data sets is uneven at best.
Join us in this Love Your Data week discussion, in which researchers and service providers will describe groundbreaking research on sensitive or restricted data and explore services needed to unlock the research potential of restricted data.
