Bodleian iSkills: Working with sensitive research data

Re-scheduled from 30th November, 14.00-16.00.

The role of support services at Oxford will also be outlined and in particular the role of the Bodleian Data Librarian.

Subjects to be covered include: creating original data; using Informed consent agreements; maximising usage potential of data; types of data; numbers text and beyond; strategies to protect data; embargoes, vetting and restrictions; accessing archived data; understanding access conditions; importance of metadata; trends in data access – greater detail v harder access
