Data Dialogues

In order to raise awareness of data governance issues and introduce some important topics to raise data literacy across campus, the Data Governance and Support Office is teaming with the Office of Institutional Research and the University Libraries to bring you Data Dialogues, monthly presentations for the University community on data-oriented issues. We’ll usually meet on the second Thursday of the month from 1-2pm in Rush Rhees Library but please note details for individual presentations. 

Love Data Week

Roses are red, violets are blue, we love data, and hope you do too! To celebrate Love Data Week the library is hosting a series of hands-on workshops to help you feel the data love! Join us the week of February 10th through 14th. Workshops are offered as part of the Data Dialogues series and are open to the entire University of Rochester community.


Past Workshops

Managing your Scholarly Identity

It is increasingly important for researchers to have a professional presence online. In this workshop you’ll learn how to establish and manage your scholarly identity to help you connect with colleagues, find collaborators, and expose your work to new audiences. You’ll also learn how to boost your scholarly impact using social media and how to make sense of alternative metrics that come with these new methods of knowledge communication and dissemination.

Understanding Research Impact

Research impact refers to the demonstrable contribution that your research makes within your field, within the academy at large, as well as the effect of your work on the economy and society. In this workshop you'll learn about personal- and publication-level impact metrics, explore how your work is represented within research impact systems, and develop strategies to measure and contextualize your impact.

Beyond the Article: Data & Code as Independent Scholarly Outputs

Data and code are increasingly discussed as first-class research outputs, on par with scholarly articles. Learn how to share your data and code to meet publisher requirements, to increase your research impact, and to open up your scholarship to new audiences. 

Data Management - the easy way! 

Managing your research data doesn't have to be a painful process. In this workshop you'll learn practical tips and tricks for naming, storing, organizing and securing your data, as well as learn more about developing data management plans for grant and awards submissions. 

 Getting Started with Tableau

Tableau is a data visualization application that lets you analyze data and build interactive dashboards using drag-and-drop tools--no coding required! In this beginner workshop you'll practice using the Tableau toolset, create charts, graphs and maps, and learn how to pull everything together into an interactive dashboard.
