Data & Statistics 101 - Will you be using statistics or data in your research? This session will go over various aspects of data and the support available for you at NYU Libraries and elsewhere - where to find it, how you can use it, how you can gather it, and options for storing it. We will introduce the data life cycle model and then briefly look at different data repositories/databases and some software packages/databases that can then manipulate the data you find or gather. The course is intended as a brief overview with time to discuss your potential projects or answer questions about related services and resources that NYU provides. Slides
