This week's webinar is entitled "Responsible Data Use and Managing Your
Own Data" and will be presented by Ruth Duerr, Data Stewardship Program
Manager, National Snow and Ice Data Center . Scientists are often
reluctant to talk to the media about their work. Do you know how to use data
from your colleagues or an archive in a responsible and ethical manner?
Are your local data management practices, the practices you use on a
day-to-day basis sound? If the answer to either of these questions is no,
then this webinar is for you. This webinar will provide an overview of
everything you need to know in order to deal with not only your own data but
also to use other people's data ethically and in a responsible manner.
