Savvy Researcher Workshops - University Library

You spend hours collecting data. How do you manage the data and extract information to answer your questions? This workshop will cover some of the basic principles of database design. Whether you are using a spreadsheet or a more complex system, understanding what data to collect and how to store it can streamline the research process. Participants will learn how to plan for efficient and effective data organization with skills that are applicable to databases such as Access and Oracle.
