Preservation and Curation of Your Thesis and Dissertation Research Data: Storage and Version Control

Michael Boock

Monday, August 7, 2017 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Where and how you choose to store and organize your research materials and writings will determine how long they survive. The risks to your digital files are many and varied: from file corruption, viruses, storage device malfunctions, accidental or malicious deletions to not knowing what version of your work is the most current. In this workshop, you will learn how to understand the range of threats to storage stability in the digital environments you are using for your research outputs, gain familiarity with storage options for your research, and learn to use naming/storage conventions to “version” your research files, making it easier to know your research history.
