As you develop your research, you will have to consider how to manage and organize the data you’re gathering. The type of research you are doing and the standards of your field(s) will affect your data organization and analysis practices. When you prepare and submit your final work as a thesis or dissertation, earlier decisions you have made about how the data is structured and organized will have implications for how readily others will be able to access and make use (or sense) of your data. In this workshop you will learn what metadata is and how it can impact the future usefulness of your research content; what types of metadata you can create; how to use a basic spreadsheet to build an inventory for your ETD package; options for data management and data organization.
