Intro to Data Management

Documenting Data

Audience: faculty, grads, and undergrads; one session at multiple times

Learn about documenting the data produced in your research. What’s a file naming convention, should you file or pile your digital data, and when do you need to README?

Sharing Data

Audience: faculty, grads, and undergrads; one session at multiple times

Learn how to responsibly share research data. How do you select a data repository, what are the steps to deposit data, and where can you get help preparing data to share?

Copyright & Your Electronic Thesis or Dissertation

Audience: undergrads and grads, one session at multiple times

Will your thesis or dissertation raise copyright issues?  Learn about navigating copyright and author rights in a digital environment! The workshops will answer questions like …

  • Everyone quotes the work of other scholars in their dissertation. As long as the quotes are acknowledged, does this ever raise copyright issues?
  • I found a photo online on a website. Can I include it in my dissertation since everything’s free on the internet?
  • Should I pay to register copyright for my dissertation?
  • I have this great film clip from the 1940s with images and music that I’d like to include with my dissertation. Are there different copyright rules for audio-visual formats?
  • Chapter 1 of my dissertation has been published in a journal. Is this a problem?

Submitting Your Electronic Dissertation/Thesis

Audience: undergrads and grads, one session at multiple times

A hands-on workshop for students required to submit an electronic thesis or dissertation (Honor’s undergraduate, MA, MPH, PhD) covering how to use the Woodruff Library’s Electronic Theses and Dissertation (ETD) site. We’ll take you through each step of the submission process.

  • If your thesis or dissertation is ready to submit at the time of the workshop, you’ll be able to complete the process, so bring your completed electronic files. These files should include a PDF of your thesis or dissertation and any supplemental files (such as videos, audio recordings, or data sets).
  • If you’re still working on your thesis or dissertation, you can save yourself time by preparing before you begin your actual ETD submission. Review these 5 Tips Before You Submit on our instructions page for guidance.
