Midday at the Oasis: What to do after You Take a Data Course

Class Details

This is a joint webinar of PSR's Midday at the Oasis and PNR Rendezvous! Each of us hosts a webinar on the third Wednesday of the Month!

Summary: There are many online and in-person courses available for librarians to learn about research data management, data analysis, and visualization, but after you have taken a course, how do you go about applying what you have learned? While it is possible to just start offering classes and consultations, your service will have a better chance of becoming relevant if you consider stakeholders and review your institutional environment. This lecture will give you some ideas to get started with data services at your institution.
