Historians and their Data: a Workshop Exploring Best Practice for Research Data Management in History

Course date(s): 
14 Apr 2014
Managing digital data is a critical skill for anyone conducting research in History. Whether you are an individual scholar or a partner in a large collaborative project, the way in which you collect, organise and manage your data will have a big impact on your research. It will affect the ways in which you can ask questions of your data and consequently it will influence your interpretation. Further, it will affect your ability to verify your conclusions at a later date as well as inhibit the potential to re-use and share the data. Your data might consist of oral history recordings, images of ancient artefacts, economic and social statistical data or transcribed copies of archive documents. Irrespective of where your data comes from and what form it takes, it will be the bedrock of your research and so it is important that you look after it!
