OSU Libraries and Graduate School Expanding Access to OSU Research Data: Data Management Services for Graduate Students and Post-Docs

Most of the research data currently produced by graduate students in the course of conducting the research associated with their thesis or dissertation is lost to the university upon graduation. At best, it is stored on hard drives or servers without metadata or other information to describe what the data consists of, how it is structured, or how one might use it. It is therefore unavailable for validation and reuse by other scientists via the internet. This year, the Center for Digital Scholarship and Services (CDSS) at OSU Libraries interviewed

Basic EndNote Workshop

Love the writing but hate formatting those citations?  Wrapping up your thesis or dissertation this spring or summer?  Learn to use basic but powerful features of the reference management tool, EndNote.  In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn to setup an EndNote library, save references and pdfs, automatically create and edit a bibliography, and prepare a document for publishing.  This workshop is intended for novice EndNote users and is intentionally slow-paced and very interactive.

Introduction to Git **Registration Required**

This workshop is an introduction to version control systems with Git. Version control systems are tools that keep track of the changes made on a document, and help version and merge files. They allow the user to decide which changes make up the next version, and keep useful data about them. Version control systems are usually used by developers and people who write code, but are very useful also for people working with documents in general. It is especially helpful for collaborative work with more than one person working on the same file.

Showcasing Your Research

Do you feel the pressure of defending the importance of your research? Or do you see the Web as an opportunity to increase the visibility of your research but are frustrated about how to make it happen? This workshop will introduce quantitative measures for scholarly impact (e.g., citation, altmetrics, and h-index), open access initiatives (OA), and their correlation. The participants will also learn how to use social media and an institutional repository (IR) to boost and demonstrate the influence of their work.

Time: 
Wed, 10/10/2018 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
