Event description

Description

UCL Library Services is pleased to invite UCL staff and students to an afternoon of information and discussion about the UK Data Service (UKDS).

The UKDS is funded by the ESRC to meet the data needs of researchers, students and teachers in the Social Sciences and Humanities. Its collection includes major UK government-sponsored surveys, cross-national surveys, longitudinal studies, UK census data, international aggregate, business data, and qualitative data.

Participants will learn how to access these collections as well as how to deposit their own research data and sources in the UKDS repository, ReShare. During the drop-in session participants will be able to ask questions about data sharing, ESRC data management plans, consent procedures, data storage, encryption and more.


Programme

14:15-15:15: Presentation and demonstration of ReShare followed by Q&A

15:15-15:30: Tea break

15:30-17:00: Drop-in session with representatives from the UKDS

This afternoon is open to all UCL staff and students interested in the UKDS, including ESRC grant holders and applicants; you are welcome to attend only the first or second part of the event.


Venue

The UCL Institute of Advanced Studies is located in the South Wing of the UCL main building (www.ucl.ac.uk/maps/south-wing).
