Data curation becomes shared endeavor

« Backed by a $526,438 grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the U-M Library and seven other academic libraries will launch the Data Curation Network. The network helps institutions better support researchers who are seeking to meet a growing number of mandates to openly and ethically share their research data.

Data curators apply disciplinary knowledge and librarian expertise to ensure that stored datasets are reusable, but no single institution can provide this curatorial expertise in every discipline. The Data Curation Network will seamlessly connect a wide network of expert data curators to supplement local expertise.


The University of Minnesota Libraries will lead the three-year implementation phase of the project along with the U-M Library, Sheridan Libraries at Johns Hopkins University, Duke University Libraries, University Library at University of Illinois at Urbana­-Champaign, Cornell University Library, Penn State University Libraries, and the Dryad Digital Repository.
