This three day course is meant for researchers who want to learn how to exploit their historical sources in a structured, systematic and sustainable way. General goal is teaching students best practices of handling historical longitudinal data by way of the Intermediate Data Structure (IDS). Firstly the IDS will be introduced and explained; secondly the course will concentrate on the ways how data are converted into datasets for analysis by way of extraction software. Thirdly recent experiences in the use of extraction software will be presented and evaluated.
