Data Management Planning Workshops

Join the University of Cincinnati Libraries for a series of workshops on data management planning! The workshops will address universal data management best practices for health sciences, science and engineering students and professionals. While much of the focus is on STEM fields, this course will be useful for anyone interested in learning more about data management practices and principles. Each workshop will include a teaching portion and hands on activities. We recommend that registrants attend all three workshops if possible. Workshops will be held in the Health Sciences Library (HSL) Electronic Classroom G005G.
