Find out how to make the most of your data with a Digital Scholarship Workshop Series

The Freedman Center for Digital Scholarship at Kelvin Smith Library invites members of the Case Western Reserve University community to participate in the Digital Scholarship Workshop Series this semester. David Beales, digital scholarship partner, will lead hands-on workshops that explore data, where to find it, what to do with it and how to use it to your advantage in your academic pursuits in all areas. This series concludes with a bring-your-own-data workshop for a chance to get one-on-one assistance with your current research projects. 

The series will be composed of the following sessions:

  • Feb. 1: “Mapping Data”
  • Feb. 8: Workshop—“Intro to Mapping in R”
  • March 1: “Using Text Analysis”
  • March 8: Workshop—“Intro to Text Analysis with Python”
  • April 5: “Finding, Preparing and Exploring Data”
  • April 12: Workshop—“BYOD (Bring-Your-Own-Data)”

All sessions will be held in Kelvin Smith Library, Classroom 215, from 1 to 2 p.m. Hands-on workshop sessions require registration; sign up for a session.
