About DCN Curator Workshops
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. Get in touch if you would like to organize a workshop for your staff!
- 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.
