RDAP Workshop: Curating Open Educational Datasets Online
Please note the workshop time specified here is in Mountain Daylight Time.
This is a two day workshop - participants are encouraged to attend the sessions on both October 29 and 30 (1-2:30 PM MDT).
The RDAP Education & Resources committee presents the second in a series of online, interactive workshops: Collaboratively Curating Open, Educational Datasets. Participants in this event will have an opportunity to gain hands-on experience with common data curation strategies and tools by curating a publicly available dataset to improve its FAIR-ness and educational fitness-for-purpose.
For this workshop, participants will curate data that have been previously published on the New Mexico Digital Collections, a statewide service provided by the University of New Mexico. The collection of focus is the UNM Center for Southwest Research's Linda S. Cordell Digital Media and Archaeological Data collection: https://econtent.unm.edu/digital/collection/cordell, which consists of documents, media, and other items from the archive of distinguished UNM archaeology professor, Dr. Linda Cordell. In particular, the pubished collection includes research data describing the chemical compositions of regional soil and corn samples.
