OSU Libraries and Graduate School Expanding Access to OSU Research Data: Data Management Services for Graduate Students and Post-Docs

Most of the research data currently produced by graduate students in the course of conducting the research associated with their thesis or dissertation is lost to the university upon graduation. At best, it is stored on hard drives or servers without metadata or other information to describe what the data consists of, how it is structured, or how one might use it. It is therefore unavailable for validation and reuse by other scientists via the internet. This year, the Center for Digital Scholarship and Services (CDSS) at OSU Libraries interviewed

Introduction to Git **Registration Required**

This workshop is an introduction to version control systems with Git. Version control systems are tools that keep track of the changes made on a document, and help version and merge files. They allow the user to decide which changes make up the next version, and keep useful data about them. Version control systems are usually used by developers and people who write code, but are very useful also for people working with documents in general. It is especially helpful for collaborative work with more than one person working on the same file.

Intro to LaTeX

LaTeX is a free high-quality typesetting system suitable for any form of publishing, but specially useful for technical or scientific documents. It is designed so that you won’t have to worry as much about the appearance of your document, and will be able to focus on getting the right content. We will talk about the basic structure of a document, the typesetting of complex mathematical formulas, inclusion of figures, and the generation of bibliographies with BibTeX.
