September 12, 2017 – The Portage Research Data Management Training Expert Group (TEG) has identified and compiled a range of external resources into an online search tool useful for learning and training in the domain of research data management (RDM).
The online search tool is accessible through the newly created Training Resources section of the Portage website, which will grow to feature educational and training materials produced by the Portage network of experts and will link to external resources that may be of interest to the broader community of practice. The training resources compiled to date cover a range of topics across the research data lifecycle, from the development and completion of data management plans, to documentation and curation methods, to preservation and storage best practices. The resource library is intended to be a living tool and will be updated and curated as new resources are made available and discovered. With this purpose in mind, a Resource Submission Form has also been developed for users to suggest additional training resources to be indexed by the online search tool.
