Finding & Using Open Data In-Person

More and more research data is now available online for re-use and replication. But finding and using open data presents a number of challenges, especially if you are new to the process. Join Subject Librarian for Health Sciences Hanna Schmillen for a introductory workshop that will leave you ready to locate and deploy open data for your own research projects. 

By the end of the workshop, we expect that you'll be able to: 

  1. Define data and open data as these terms relate to research in general and for your own discipline. 
  2. Identify the connection between your research project and available data.
  3. Develop strategies for locating data for your own research project. 

While this workshop will not address data analysis, you should know that there are many courses for learning data analysis with SPSS, Nvivo, R, and the general prinicples of statistics on the Lynda.com platform. As of Summer 2018, Ohioans with a public library card will have access to the full suite of Lynda.com educational resources through their public library. If you don't already have a library card from an Ohio public library, consider getting a card from the Athens County Public Libraries

Ohio University Libraries are committed to providing programs and services that are accessible to all participating individuals. If you would like to request an accommodation for this event, please contact Jennifer Harvey at 740-593-2906 or harveyj1@ohio.edu.
