Last week, we had the pleasure to travel to Bethesda, Maryland, to offer a specialized data curation workshop. As part of a collaborative learning series between the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Data Curation Network, this workshop brought together individuals from across the United States, in particular institutions with limited curation support. This included participation from researchers, data stewards, program officers, and many others.
Over the course of two days, we dove into the CURATE(D) Model, and held space for discussion. Of course, the time always goes too quickly! But we are incredibly grateful for our participants showing up, making the space in their busy schedules, and being present for one another. Pictured above, you can see attendees enjoying the beautiful spring weather on the NIH campus — which was the perfect chance to network with one another!
We are thankful for the support of Lisa Federer, Acting Director, NLM Data Science and Open Science Librarian, and Ishwar Chandramouliswaran, Lead, FAIR Data & Resources (NIH ODSS) for making this workshop a reality. Huge thanks to instructors Jen Darragh (pictured left) and Sophia Lafferty-Hess for sharing your knowledge with attendees!
As noted, this was part of a collaborative learning series we developed together. In the coming months, we will work together to identify future programs – so we want to know! Which of our events did you attend and enjoy? Which would you like to see revamped for future offerings? Is there anything we missed altogether that you’d like to see a workshop on?
