Description

Researchers and librarians are increasingly required to engage in careful management and curation of research data. These are still relatively new activities in most scientific disciplines, but they are particularly uncharted territory for research involving qualitative data. Based on his experience as the associate director of the Qualitative Data Repository (https://qdr.syr.edu), Sebastian will talk about the importance of managing and sharing qualitative data and about some best practices in doing so.
