Data Audit Framework and DRAMBORA Online launch event
The Data Audit Framework and DRAMBORA tools were launched at the British Academy on 1st October 2008. The tools were well received and generated much discussion on data management issues. Particular concerns were embedding tools in workflows and offering basic data management training to early career researchers. Attendees predominantly came from Higher Education, cultural heritage, charities and the commercial sector. Most represented the concerns of repository officers, archivists, librarians, computer scientists and researchers.
The programme is available and several of the presentations from the day can be downloaded below.
