Does your research result in stacks of books, folders of newspaper clippings, boxes of photographs, digital files, and more? How do you keep connections between physical and digital materials? This workshop introduces the ‘what and why’ of managing your research. We will explore your individual practices as we assess a variety of research management practices. The workshop assumes no prior knowledge and is particularly focused on management of humanities and social sciences research materials.

Women continue to be under-represented in higher education. As a result, many female graduate students do not have access to mentors within their own department who can speak to their questions and concerns. Come hear from faculty who have gone through it - graduate school, the job market, and the promotion process. Faculty will share their insights and take your questions. Panelists include Janet Cross (Pathology), Karlin Luedtke (WGS), Beverly Adams (Psychology), Catherine Bradshaw (Curry), and Silvia Blemker (BME). Lunch will be served.

If you have trouble keeping track of changes you've made in projects, then git can help you. It's a *version control* program that remembers all the changes you've make to a project, and it also helps you collaborate with others on that project. Git's great for managing websites, computer program source code, and even papers. In this workshop, we'll learn about how git views the world so that we can use it more effectively, and we'll get hands-on practice using git to track changes in a small project.

Research projects often rely on fieldwork to build new datasets. In this workshop we’ll focus on tools for spatial data collection. First we’ll take a quick look behind the curtain to see how GPS really works and how to use that knowledge to our advantage. Then we’ll evaluate free or low-cost options to gather locations and associated attributes using handheld GPS devices, smartphones, and apps. This workshop will introduce you to a range of devices and methods for mobile spatial data collection.
