My Notes

This is a set of PowerPoint slides I put together for a brief presentation and discussion with summer research students in our department about good record keeping and data management practices. 

Learning Goals

A student should be able to:

  • Explain why good data management and record keeping practices are important
  • Identify the type of information that should be recorded in laboratory notebooks
  • Develop a transparent file organization system
  • Implement good data management practices in their own laboratory work
Implementation Notes

I gave this presentation to a group of chemistry research students near the beginning of our summer research program. The format was an informal presentation, with lots of active discussion throughout.  A list of references I used to build the presentation are at the end of the PPT, but I also linked them in the web resources below.
