Once you start dealing with big batches of files, File Explorer and Finder can only go so far. If you’re looking to deal with files on a larger scale, with more control, and in a systematic way, there are some tools that can help. This workshop, led by Katie Wolf, Science and Technology Librarian at Fordham University Libraries, will cover the command line and the ways you can manipulate files, folders, and more—all with minimal mouse clicking! And, for those who want to be a bit more programmatic about it, this webinar will also cover essential Python recipes for repeated file manipulation strategies. Get ready to go beyond the GUI.
