Thanks to generous funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), Grant  #RE-85-18-0040-18, the DCN is proud to share online training modules that follow our CURATE(D) workshop curriculum.

The goal of the CURATE(D) Training, both in person and through these modules, is to offer an introduction to applied data curation. This new, interactive online training is designed for those completely new to data curation, those hoping to refresh their data curation skills, or those looking to apply data curation knowledge to the management of their own research data. This training and associated CURATE(D) model are teaching and research tools that are presented and best understood sequentially, but the online modules allow for users to explore the material in whatever way they wish.

Much like our curation primers, we expect to need to adjust these modules over time, to provide new content and to refresh existing curricula. The modules are hosted through GitHub, and those interested can review the repository. Users can submit feedback through our Google Form (, which will be reviewed by the DCN Education Committee.
