Webinar - Doorways to Data
There is a wealth of data ‘out there’ and it is a valuable resource. There are several benefits to learning about the data that is widely available, including:
- Allows independent validation of results
- Avoids replication
- Leads to new collaborations and partnerships
Are you aware of all the datasets that are ‘out there’? Do you know how to access them? Do you know whether there’s a cost? Join us for a webinar that will introduce several relevant datasets, and help you understand how to access and get the most out of them. This webinar is brought to you by the AAG’s Housing and Built Environment Special Interest Group
- Identify data sources that will be useful to their research
- Learn how to access the data sources
- Identify any barriers to accessing the information, such as license requirement/ permissions or fees
