Kick your research into high gear!

Would you like to take every aspect of your research — from design and data management to information visualization and global sharing — to the next level?

University Libraries is now recruiting for participants in its first ever Digital Research Services Boot Camp, a two-day, high-intensity crash course that will help you build a strong foundation in next-era scholarship.

Our expert trainers will do a deep dive into services they offer that encompass the entire research life cycle, introduce emerging technologies and publishing formats, and discuss best practices in digital scholarship.

Boot Camp is free and open to graduate students and new faculty who have been at the university three years or less.

Digital Research Services Boot Camp will specifically cover:

  • Research data management – data management plans, data sharing, metadata and more
  • Citation management with free Zotero software
  • Scholarly communication – creating, evaluating, disseminating and preserving research in traditional and new environments
  • Creating visual representations of data with statistical graphics, plots, information graphics and other tools

Classes will take place Monday and Tuesday, Aug. 19 and 20 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at Thomas Cooper Library.

Snacks and lunch will be provided.

Registration is required by August 1, 2019.
