Information and Data Literacy

We live in a world saturated by information and data. At Yale, Ph.D. students master different methodologies and practices for working with information and data in their chosen field of study. The Information and Data Literacy core competence project is intended to help Ph.D students push beyond the boundaries of their discipline, to gain knowledge and experience in different modes of information and data collection, analysis, and dissemination.

Ph.D. students and early career scholars interested in acquiring extra-disciplinary skills to organize, manage, and analyze data and information will find what they need here to improve their own research and expand their opportunities for post-graduate employment.
