We are the Data Curation Network
As professional data curators, research data librarians, academic library administrators, directors of international data repositories, disciplinary subject experts, and scholars we represent academic institutions and non-profit societies that make research data available to the public.
What we do
Data curators prepare and enrich research data to make them findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR). Sharing our data curation staff across DCN partner institutions enables data repositories to collectively, and more effectively, curate a wider variety of data types (e.g., discipline, file format, etc.) that expands beyond what any single institution might offer alone.
We strive to build services that are compatible across all technology systems and software formats. With a proven and appealing value-proposition, the Data Curation Network will expand into a sustainable entity that grows beyond our initial partner institutions.
