Using digital technologies effectively has become a mainstream requirement for the modern scholar. But how do you manage a tsunami of file formats, storage systems, metadata standards - not to mention the latest digital tools and cloud services - when all you want to do is focus on your research question? This interactive workshop will help you get organised and start managing your files and information properly. Keep track of your data and learn techniques to become a more efficient researcher by getting your file management under control.

By the end of the workshop you will:

  • Know what good file management looks like
  • Know how to apply a consistent file naming scheme
  • Create a directory structure that makes sense in your context.
