More about this project

The central aim of the DataSafe project is to create a training programme to increase the data management and preservation knowledge of university support staff who are often producers of critical data to support the general running of the institution, for example finance reports and records, student programme support materials and administrative reports not held in centralised systems. The training programme will consist of two training modules – an introduction and intermediate course which will cover topics such as file naming conventions, multiple copy models, proprietary vs. open technologies, an awareness of the role of metadata and data migration.  The courses will be produced and piloted with University of Bristol support staff but all training materials and other outputs will be made freely available for use by the wider community at the end of the pilot period.
