In 2022, the DCN continued growing our community, offering educational opportunities, and, of course, curating research data and code! We are pleased to release our 2022 Annual Report which includes information about our members, our shared expertise and community of practice, research efforts, and governance.
Some highlights from the previous year:
- Duke University was awarded an IMLS-grant to expand our community-centered professional development through instructional cohorts.
- The DCN continued our advocacy for institutional repositories and is recognized for our expertise in advance of the NIH’s data sharing policy.
- The DCN remains an active research partner, highlighting the work of data stewards in supporting data communities, understanding the costs of academic sharing, and improving the value of data shared by our institutions.
- The Data Curation Network (DCN) released our 2022-2025 Strategic Framework, which includes 8 key objectives. These will be instrumental in guiding our work for the next few years.
Thanks to all of our community members — our special interest groups, curators, governance and advisory boards, and library administrators — for supporting us in this work. Thanks also to the University of Minnesota for hosting the Data Curation Network.
Stay tuned for exciting work in 2023!
