Description

The Research Data Access & Preservation Summit is an annual conference hosted by the Association for Information Science and Technology. The past events page provides links to programs, and conference presentation slides from 2011-2013, and 2015 available on the presentation sharing platform Slideshare, offering a digital record of the persistent, evolving, and emerging discussions in the field of data management. Presentations from 2015 range from Carmen Caswell’s “Data Management Outreach for the Humanities: A University of Illinois at Chicago Case Study,” a basic overview of preservation methods and the culture of preservation at UIC, to John McGrory’s “Excel Archival Tool: Automating the Spreadsheet Conversion Process,” an introduction and demonstration of a tool he helped develop that automates the Excel data conversion process, avoiding the time consuming process of manually converting files and data formats while archiving massive Excel based data sets. There are also a series of presentations that discuss case studies, and considerations for making workflow plans to expedite and streamline archiving processes in institutional data repositories.
