Join us for an informative Data Carpentries session on managing and organizing data in spreadsheets. You will learn how to use spreadsheet programs for data organization, handling formatting problems, understanding dates as data, implementing basic quality assurance and control techniques, exporting data from spreadsheets, and exploring caveats of popular data and file formats. The session will be led by Kaelen Bennett from TALint Student, Collection Development Department University of Toronto Library, and David Kwasny, Digital Projects & Technologies Librarian at University of Toronto Scarborough Library.
