Archives Management (Rachel Hosker, Archives Manager, Library & University Collections, University of Edinburgh)
From Malcolm Brown
A free one-day workshop to discuss the challenge of managing research data in relation to records management and archives. The workshop will consider the challenges involved in capturing current research data and in managing issues in re-using legacy research data, which can range from mineral specimens and laboratory notebooks to databases and other born-digital content. It will look at the contextual value of holding research data and the associated records or archives, user needs and at the interventions in the research lifecycle needed to preserve the whole output appropriately.
