Data Curation Network

Publié le 27 mai 2016, par Thérèse Hameau

The Data Curation Network project brings together the perspectives of research data librarians, academic library administration, and data curation subject experts from six major academic institutions to develop a Data Curation Network model. Data curation services are currently provided by expert staff at each of our institutions to prepare digital research data for open access and reuse. Our goal is to demonstrate that by sharing our data curation staff across a ‘network of expertise’ will enable academic libraries to collectively, and more effectively, curate a wider variety of data types (e.g., discipline, file format, etc.) that expands beyond what any single institution might offer alone.
