Harvard Library Online Seminar: Research Data Management Onboarding


Monday, September 14, 2020, 1:00pm to 2:00pm


Online via Zoom - meeting info to follow


Research Data Management is essential for responsible research and should be introduced when starting a new project or joining a new lab. Managing data across a project and/ or a team allows for accurate communication about that project.

This session will review the important steps for onboarding new employees/trainees to a lab or new projects. The key take-away from this session will be how to incorporate these steps within your individual project or lab environment.

Note: we will be focusing on the RDM Onboarding Checklist tailored for Harvard researchers. While the principles are general, we will focus on Harvard policies and resources.
