Whether you’re building a digital project, or just trying to organize and query your own research materials, the way you organize your materials can have a major impact on the kinds of questions you can answer. This workshop will address how to think through the process of transforming your “research materials” into “data” that you can query. While the workshop will not specifically cover how to install and configure any particular technology for working with your data, we will discuss pros and cons of a number of technologies commonly used for storing, presenting, and working with data.
While this workshop is oriented toward the types of data common in humanistic research, it is open to anyone interested and could be useful to any scholars working especially with qualitative data.
This workshop is offered by Stanford Libraries' Center for Interdisciplinary Research as part of its mission to provide training in technical academic research practices and applied research methods.
