Workshops are taught by Data Curation Network instructors and have reached over 150 attendees from more than 100 academic libraries, national agencies, museums, and beyond.
The DCN Specialized Data Curation Workshop is based on the CURATE(D) Steps. The workshops provide an opportunity for data curators and stewards, information professionals, data specialists, and discipline and functional experts in a peer-to-peer learning environment for data curation. In the workshop, participants implement their skills learned against actual datasets for a unique hands-on experience.
- Increase understanding of data curation practices and tools in various disciplines, data types, and formats.
- Share expertise and enhance curation capacity for librarians nationwide.
- Meet like-minded colleagues who are interested in building and extending curation practices at their institutions.
Attendees work over a 6 month period to develop a Data Curation Primers that details the curation steps for a particular data type. Primers developed by past workshop attendees are published in GitHub and in our project repository for open access and reuse.
