Using Metadata to Find, Interpret & Share Your Data

Using Metadata to Find, Interpret & Share Your Data In-Person

Ever struggle to find that file you saved last semester (or last week)? Having trouble remembering details to re-use your own data? Need others to understand & use your data? To ensure that you understand your own data and to enable others to find, use and properly cite your data, it helps to create capture documentation or metadata about the datasets you create.

This workshop will introduce you to the power of metadata standards: What they are, why they’re important, and how to get started with them. You'll understand the critical role documentation plays in data management and how you can ensure good documentation throughout your research.
