Data Training @ Mann

There are a number of data-related training opportunities for graduate students being offered at Mann library this fall:

Data sharing: Recommendations regarding how and where to share data, Tuesday November 12th, 4:00 – 5:30pm, Mann Library Stone Classroom
The NSF and other funding agencies have already adopted data sharing policies. Publishers also have data sharing requirements, whether they host data themselves, or expect researchers to deposit data in a data center or to make it available upon request. So where to share? During this workshop, we’ll discuss disciplinary databases, Cornell’s eCommons digital repository, and some other sharing strategies, and will introduce a set of criteria upon which to base your decision.

Intermediate/Advanced Microsoft Excel Workshop, Tuesday November 19th, 12:00 – 1:15pm, Mann Library Stone Classroom
In this workshop, we’ll be introducing intermediate and advanced features of Microsoft Excel 2013, including useful keyboard shortcuts, formulas, and pivot tables. We’ll have data for you to practice with in this hands-on session, but bring your own data and questions to try to stump the teachers!

Data Documentation: What did TMTC mean? How to describe your data, Tuesday December 3rd, 4:00 – 5:30pm, Mann Library Stone Classroom
How do you document your digital data and the steps you take to analyze it? Are your files sufficiently organized and well-described so that others can interpret what you’ve done? What about yourself, three months from now? This workshop will offer some best practices and strategies to adopt in order to organize and describe your data for yourself and others.

The workshops are free, but registration is requested.

Details and registration information can be found at:  Questions can be directed to Sarah Wright at
