Losing History Data files

Dr Adam Chapman

Where you store your data and how you go about ensuring its safety through back-up depends largely on what best suits you and what options are available to you. However, it is something that always needs some thought given to it throughout the research process. Here Dr Adam Chapman (Victoria County History) talks about his own experiences of losing data.

Managing your Research online tutorial

These videos were created as part of the AHRC Collaborative Skills project History DMT (Data Management Training). The project sought to establish training for postgraduates and early career researchers in managing data. Three workshops were held across the country (Hull, Sheffield, and London) and an online research training course developed. The project was managed and developed by the Institute of Historical Research (School of Advanced Study, University of London), the Department of History at the University of Hull, and the Humanities Research Institute at the University of Sheffield.
