This February 14th, take some time to love your research data! Join us for workshops to help you find data, and to clean your data and keep it safe. Organized by SFU Library and SFU Big Data.
Do you work with research data in spreadsheets? If so, this workshop is designed for you! We’ll be covering the best practices for Data Organization in Spreadsheets, according to Data Carpentry. Then we’ll look at formatting values, fixing dates, merging/splitting columns, and more. By the end, you’ll be prepared to take your spreadsheets to the next level.
Protect your research data by following strong security practices. This workshop will cover topics including:
- cloud storage,
- full disk encryption,
- threat modelling,
- communication and file sharing,
- account security,
- two-factor authentication (2FA), and
- digital preservation.
Learn how to keep data secure with SFU resources.
