So you want to share data in your (institutional*) repository…

Join us for a morning of data repository do’s, don’ts, and everything in-between on July 14th, 2020, in an online format (in Zoom) that will include speakers and a roundtable discussion. We will start with a panel of speakers with diverse experiences establishing, administering, and troubleshooting data repositories who will discuss topics ranging from generating administrative and researcher buy-in to cross-departmental collaboration and technical support. This will be followed by a roundtable discussion in which attendees will explore  their experiences with the unique benefits, challenges, and surprises, pleasant or otherwise, of managing data in repositories.

Registration is now open! Please visit our Eventbrite page to register. Space is limited. 

Location: Virtual roundtable via Zoom.  The Zoom link will be sent to registrants closer to the date.
