Data Curation: Understanding & Dealing with Research Data
Saturday, March 24, 2012
9:00 AM – 4:30 PM
Associate Dean for Research, Purdue University Libraries
In the past few years, “data deluge” has become a topic of concern for federal agencies, grant funders, scholars, and librarians. What is going to happen to all the data that is being generated by researchers? And what should be the role of librarians in this evolving area of scholarly communication? One approach to address these issues led to the development of the Data Curation Profile, a tool for information professionals to gather information about a specific set of research data that may be published, shared, or archived for reuse and dissemination. Through hands-on activities, this full-day workshop covers how the Data Curation Profile was designed, and illustrates the types of information it gathers and the various scenarios for which the profiles can be useful. Registration is free for paid conference attendees. Register early for this free workshop as attendance is limited to 40. Lunch is not included.
