Publication Abstract

Digital curation has emerged as an important area for Library and Information Science research, and is of particular interest for academic and research libraries. There are now a number of service models emerging, as we assume increasing responsibility for the curation and stewardship of research data across our institutions. Curation of research data involves a range of problems that will need to be better understood; and, while it is clear that libraries cannot address or solve these problems alone, our work will have an impact: How we shape our collective data infrastructures will shape how data assets contribute to science. This talk will address current research in the field of data curation and the development of education programs to meet these challenges.
