Libraries and Societies Data and Software Sharing Series
Mon 10/18 • 9:30AM - 12PM PDT
Please join the UCLA Library and the American Geophysical Union (AGU) in a webinar aimed at offering insight and support to scholars conducting research across various areas of geophysical research. Through this event, we hope to advance knowledge of current best practices and tools, and connect researchers with UCLA Library data and software services, the greater UCLA community and the AGU.
After opening with a discussion on the growing importance of open access to research data and software at UCLA and the AGU, participants will learn about data and software resources and services offered by both institutions. This will be followed by a presentation on recent advances of possible benefit to researchers, along with an opportunity to discuss any additional data and software-related questions and challenges.

The UCLA Library and the American Geophysical Union (AGU) share a commitment to helping researchers preserve, share, discover, and receive credit for their research data and software. Partnered together, we offer services, guidance, and coordinate improvements throughout the research lifecycle to guide researchers to organize, describe, and curate their data and software with the goal of transparency and reproducibility. Our services advance management and computational skills through training programs like The Carpentries and consulting services like the UCLA DataSquad to provide foundational practices and techniques for preserving and citing data and software.
