Data Curation in the Research Library

The slides and notes for a Brown Bag presentation made at Penn State University Libraries on September 30, 2014. Scholars are increasingly pressured—and sometimes required—by grant makers, publishers, and their peers to share publicly the data that they collect over the course of their research. Available data both make it possible to re-test research results and can contribute substantially to the work of other scholars. But in order for those data to be accessible and intelligible to others, they must be managed and curated with accessibility and intelligibility in mind. This talk will introduce key principles of data curation and suggest how a data curation service can both feed and advance the mission of a research library.
