This symposium was hosted by the Purdue University Libraries to discuss the current landscape in data curation, and the roles Data Curation Profiles can play in addressing issues related to research data.
The Institute of Museum and Library Services funded grant, “Understanding Curation through the use of Data Curation Profiles” delivered twelve workshops on using the Profile to over 360 librarians. The goal of this project was to provide librarians with the knowledge, training and means to engage faculty in discussions about their research data, how they work with and manage their data, and their needs in organizing, sharing, publishing, or preserving this data. The symposium was a wrap-up of the research that went into the project.
