Research Data Services at UVa

The University of Virginia Library has a growing suite of Research Data Services to benefit faculty and student researchers throughout the UVa community. This fall, we’re hosting weekly Data Services Open Office Hours in Bavaro Hall and StatLab Open Office Hours in Alderman. Come by and ask us questions!

 

In Bavaro Hall 306 (the Curry Library and Innovation Commons), you can find:

 

  • Mondays, 1-3: Statistical consulting with StatLab — StatLab provides advice and training on data analysis and the use of statistical software (for more, see http://statlab.library.virginia.edu/statistical-consulting/)
  • Tuesdays, 1-3: Metadata management — Metadata services consults with researchers on issues related to information organization, including arranging data, describing data, and choosing metadata scheme or developing controlled vocabularies. If you’re planning a new collection or preparing to archive a collection, metadata management can help.
  • Wednesdays, 1-4: Research computing support (ITS) — Research computing support assists with the licensing, distribution and use of research-related software (e.g., statistical and mathematical software, see http://its.virginia.edu/research/ for more)
  • Thursdays, 2-4: Data management consulting — The data management consultants help researchers develop data management plans, provide guidance on data workflows for research projects (e.g., file formatting and organization, security and storage), and advise on data sharing and archiving (e.g., data policies, data documentation)

 

StatLab Hours: Tuesdays through Fridays, 1-3 In Alderman 523 — Statistical consultants will be available to talk with you about your data analytic challenges

 

And if the day’s Open Office Hours host can’t answer your question, they’ll direct you to someone who can.

 

See you this fall,
