Course date(s): 
18 Aug 2017
This practical one-day workshop explores the need for good quality data in historical research, how to achieve this, and how to perform and present analysis based on historical research questions. A number of topics are addressed, primarily focusing on a broad range of querying techniques including: qualitative and quantitative analyses; the moving, shaping and programmatic altering of data; the automated generation of dependent and conditional data values; and the presentation and publication of research analyses in different formats. A reasonable familiarity with data modelling and common database tools is required.
