The second of DRI's Knowledge Sharing series looks at Research Data Appraisal.

This is the second of the Digital Repository of Ireland's new series of Knowledge Sharing Sessions, one-hour sessions designed to focus on particular areas of interest in the world of digital preservation.

On 8 December, DRI's Research Data Specialist Garret McMahon will give a talk called  "You don’t want to start from here – adapting electronic records appraisal to help manage legacy research data".

The session will examine how archival and records management techniques used to appraise electronic records could be adapted to help accession legacy research datasets for long-term preservation. It will be of particular interest to researchers and early-career academics in digital humanities, social science and other disciplines involving research data that requires preservation.
