“Portage and Research Data Management in Canada” is a full-day training event that you will want to attend on Tuesday, January 30th, 2018, at Ryerson University in Toronto, ON. The Portage Network is hosting three events on this day, which are scheduled the day before the opening of the OLA Super Conference 2018!
We invite you to join this gathering of a national community of practice for research data management (RDM) in Canada! The day of activities begins with a morning plenary session that will engage local researchers in a round-table discussion of RDM best-practices and the need for coordinated institutional, domain, and national data management services in Canada.
In the afternoon, participants will be offered a choice between two workshops:
“Portage and the DMP Assistant”: This workshop will provide an overview of data management plans and their value to researchers and those involved in providing research services on campus. Practical instruction on the use of the Portage Data Stewardship template and the online DMP Assistant platform will be provided. This session is directed primarily at researchers, data managers, and librarians.
“Portage-Supported RDM Platforms (FRDR and Dataverse)”: This workshop will provide an overview of Portage-supported RDM platforms with an examination of the Federated Research Data Repository (FRDR) and Dataverse. This will allow participants to review key considerations and opportunities for integrating these platforms into local data services. This workshop is directed primarily at librarians and administrators.
There will be no registration fee for these events, however, participants will be required to register in advance. Please note that registration for the workshops will be limited on a first registered, first served basis.
Stay tuned for more details and registration information.
