MORNING WORKSHOP

Longitudinal Research Center in a Box; UC Davis Alzheimer Disease Center's application of DDI and the Generic Longitudinal Business Process Model

 

This workshop will look at the major uses of metadata, how DDI supports them, and how to use this information to determine what parts of DDI are important to your work. Following this we will focus in on the first three areas which are of particular use to libraries, archives, and individual researchers. We will explore various decision points regarding version selection, depth, and breadth of coverage. Finally, we review the available tools noting any special functions or limitations. The attendee should gain an understanding of what DDI can support as well as how to integrate the use of DDI into their data/metadata management work.

Document Questionnaires and Datasets with DDI: A Hands-On Introduction with Colectica

 

This workshop offers a hands-on, practical approach to creating and documenting both surveys and datasets with DDI and Colectica. Participants will build and field a DDI-driven survey using their own questions or samples provided in the workshop. They will then ingest, annotate, and publish DDI dataset descriptions using the collected survey data.
