A new generation of scientific inquiry requires researchers to be skilled in managing and using data. Purdue University Libraries will partner with the libraries of Stanford University, the University of Minnesota, and the University of Oregon to develop a training program in data information literacy for graduate students who will become the next generation of scientists. As part of the project, each university will create a team consisting of librarians and experienced researchers. Each team will develop a shareable data information literacy training curriculum for students in science/engineering graduate programs. The training materials and delivery model will be evaluated and made freely available on the project website for other libraries to use.
