This is a recording of webinar, together with slides, for presentation on Keeping it tidy: Capturing and Discovering your Data Efficiently given on Wednesday, February 28th, 2024 as part of the Digital Scholarship Series.

Taking the right steps at the start of a research project can make all subsequent work much easier. How you collect and capture the information that you need to do your research (your data) is one such step. This session looks at ways to organise what you collect and how to best capture it. We cover subjects from using forms for data capture to file naming and recognising the value of metadata. After this session, you may well see the world in rows and columns.

Digital Scholar Series is run out of Digital Library Services at UCT Libraries. It aims to showcase some of the digital practices and tools available to enhance research skills, with an ongoing focus on managing research data efficiently. Topics covered deal with the management of digital materials for research (what some of us call ‘data’) and touch on digital topics throughout the research lifecycle.
