Sometimes, the easiest way to access, query and clean large data collections is using the command line, an interface with no menus where every command must be typed. For first-time users, the command line can be challenging or intimidating.

This hands-on workshop familiarizes learners with the command line using the Bash shell, including how to navigate, create, query, and manipulate data collections of almost any size, including catalogs and metadata.

No experience is necessary, but learners will need access to a computer with Zoom. Windows users will additionally need to download Git Bash (part of Git for Windows, and install it on their computer, which may require administrator privilege or assistance from IT to install on a V-owned computer.
