Creating Data Management Plans with the DMPTool (Jun. 14, 2017)

Many funding agencies now require the submission of a data management plan along with a researcher’s grant proposal. In this session, we will discuss the information that researchers should be including in their data management plans. Participants will also learn strategies for creating data management plans with the online DMPTool, which walks researchers through a funding agency’s specific requirements and expectations. Join Sharon Sadvari and Amanda Rinehart, University Libraries Data Management Services, for this hands-on workshop.

GIS for the Rest of Us (Jul. 28, 2017)

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) has revolutionized our ability to visualize and display information connected to locations. Whether you have used Google’s free tools to find aerial photos of your neighborhood, have searched for a friend’s address using the county auditor’s website, or researched the likelihood of your business flooding during a major storm event, GIS tools are at work. This hands-on workshop is designed for:

  • Researchers from all disciplines new to GIS
  • K-12 Educators
  • Informal Educators
  • Members of the Non-Profit Community
  • Community members who want to learn more

This program is offered through a partnership between the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center, the Center for Urban and Regional Analysis, and the University Libraries at The Ohio State University.
