Aims & Scope
The purpose of the Data Information Literacy (DIL) Case Studies directory is to share and preserve materials that have been used in teaching students or faculty competencies in managing, curating or working with research data. Through developing this collection of case studies, we seek to encourage and support librarians’ active engagement in teaching data literacy.
Research data is commonly defined as "The recorded factual material commonly accepted in the scientific community as necessary to validate research findings" (OMB Circular A-110, http://www.whitehouse.gov/omb/circulars_a110). For the purposes of the DIL Case Study Directory, we extend this definition to explicitly include data from the social science and humanities disciplines.
