Working with science data can be tough! Real datasets are often complex, with each type of data bringing along it its own needs for quality control, management, and analysis. Feeling overwhelmed? You're not alone!

The Stanford Libraries and the Lane Medical Library are very excited to announce that the Fall 2022 Gear-Up will focus on dealing with real data in the sciences. This event will consist of a series of virtual and hybrid workshops over 3 days, Monday - Wednesday October 10-12, culminating in an in-person research symposium and social hour on Thursday, October 13, 2022.

We invite all students, postdoctoral scholars, and researchers from all schools and departments on campus who have an interest in learning more about analyzing and presenting non-idealized data to sign-up for a workshop and join us in person for the Thursday afternoon symposium!

Gear Up at Stanford is a regular series of Stanford Library events for faculty, students, postdocs, and research staff from all schools and departments on campus. This Gear Up event is hosted by the Science and Engineering Resource Group at Stanford Libraries and the Lane Medical Library.
