SPARC DRC Open Office Hours

Information about the SPARC DRC Open Office Hours.
Updated at: 10/21/2021

The DRC will be holding regular open office hours to support the SPARC community. These sessions will be used to onboard new users of the SPARC tools and resources and refresh existing users by running tutorials and Q&A sessions.

While a given DRC core hosts each office hour, SPARC users are welcome to raise questions and comments that apply to other cores and receive guidance on an appropriate solution or be directed to the appropriate person.

Representatives from each of the DRC cores will be available as per the following schedule (all times are US Eastern):


  • Curation Open Office Hours (weekly): Shane Baldwin (MBF) will also be present during these office hours each week
    • Tuesday at 12:00-13:00
