Digital Projects drop-ins & coffee afternoons

Are you thinking of developing a digital project using library collections? Do you have questions about getting it funded, what approach to take, or what might be possible?

Do you want to know more about depositing your work or searching the Oxford University Research and Data Archives (ORA)?

This term we will be holding regular drop-in surgeries again in the Weston Library’s Centre for Digital Scholarship.

Digital project & ORA drop-ins

From Monday 12 October, you are invited to drop by to discuss projects or research using the Bodleian Libraries’ digital or digitized collections, between 9.30 and 11.30 every Monday this term.

From 11.30 to 13.30 on Mondays, you will then find experts on the Oxford University Research Archive (ORA) and ORA Data, who can answer questions about depositing your work or research using the Data and Research Archives.

Do you produce data as part of your research?

In response to the increased importance of accessible research data, the University of Oxford is currently enhancing its data management and archiving services. The end of this year will see the launch of ORA-Data, an important part of this process which will deal with archiving data from completed projects.

In light of these developments, and in order to ensure that they best suit the needs of the research community, a survey is currently being conducted with the aim of finding out more about the types, varieties and volume of data being created during research. Gathering feedback will help ensure that future researchers have access to the most useful and appropriate tools, and readers are encouraged to take part by visiting the following link before Monday 26th May:

For further information on the aims and objectives of the of survey, please see the poster below.
