This guide is currently under construction – more information coming soon!

In the meantime, check out these two upcoming events sponsored by RIT Libraries:

  • Love Data: A Cross-Disciplinary Perspective
    February 12, 2019, McKenzie Commons (LBR-1251)
    Across RIT, faculty and staff use many types of data to inform decision making, drive research, and inspire creative work. Join us for a cross-disciplinary panel to explore the broad possibilities of data and how it is used across the institution. Panelists will discuss trends in data use, the impact of data on their work, and the norms for sharing data in their fields.
  • Love Data: Resources Available from RIT Libraries
    February 14, 2019, Wallace Library (First floor)
    Data is everywhere in our daily lives—from the personal data we generate using smart devices and websites to datasets compiled by researchers or government agencies. Finding reliable and usable data can be challenging whether you are searching free websites or accessing databases available at RIT Libraries. Join us for a brief workshop where we’ll be sharing tips on finding relevant data, accessing it and analyzing it for scholarly research or personal use.
