Publication Abstract

The data curation project was piloted in Fall 2013 as part of the Foundations of Data Curation course, a required class for the Data Curation Specialization at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) at the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign.

The course was conducted in a synchronous online environment with students at di?erent stages of the graduate program who were generally novices to data curation principles and data management.
