Data Curation Education in Research Centers Program (DCERC)

Description

The Data Curation Education in Research Centers (DCERC) will develop a model for educating Library and Information Science masters and doctoral students in data curation through field experiences in research and data centers. We will implement a graduate research and education program in data curation to bring students into the world of scientific data curation. Building on the strengths of our partners-the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Graduate School of Library and Information Science, the University of Tennessee School of Information Sciences, and the National Center for Atmospheric Research, we address needs for research expertise and scientific data curation professionals.  An overview video of DCERC is available here.
