Management & Preservation of Arts Based Research Materials | GPLL284


What does research data management and preservation mean in the context of arts-based research-creation projects?  This workshop will discuss what Tri-Agency requirements exist and how they relate to the management of arts-based research materials, as well as provide guidance on the long-term preservation of digital files, including recommended file formats, storage practices, and tools for preserving specific types of content such as video or web-based art.  This workshop will also cover the resources and services that Concordia Library has on offer to assist students and faculty with management of their research materials and the archiving of their creations.

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

1. Describe what data is in relation to their own arts-based research creation project.

2. Understand what the Tri-Agencies expect from grant holders, with respect to research data management.
