Libraries and Societies Data and Software Sharing Series @ the UCLA Library and the AGU
Monday, October 18, 2021
9:30am - 12:00pm
The UCLA Library and the American Geophysical Union (AGU) share a commitment to helping researchers preserve, share, discover, and receive credit for their research data and software. Partnered together, we offer services, guidance, and coordinate improvements throughout the research lifecycle to guide researchers to organize, describe, and curate their data and software with the goal of transparency and reproducibility. Our services advance management and computational skills through training programs like The Carpentries and consulting services like the UCLA DataSquad to provide foundational practices and techniques for preserving and citing data and software.
We will open the webinar on the topic of the growing importance of open access to research data and software at UCLA and the AGU. Then we will walk you through the data and software resources and services the UCLA Library and AGU offer. This will be followed by a presentation on recent advances that may help you in your research, and provide an opportunity to discuss any additional data and software-related questions and challenges you may have. We hope to connect you with data and software services via the UCLA Library, the greater UCLA community, and the AGU while advancing your knowledge of current best practices and tools through this webinar.
