Data curation involves managing digital research data to facilitate access, dissemination, and preservation of information content and context. Librarians can engage with academic researchers in organizing, describing, and preserving research data from beginning to end of a project. This program examines data curation research opportunities for librarians, including the skills and knowledge needed for effective data curation; collaborative relationships between librarians and academic researchers; and approaches to data curation within the sciences, social sciences, and humanities.
