Indiana University, the University of Colorado Boulder, and Virginia Tech will address the challenge of curating data produced during interdisciplinary and highly collaborative research, defined as research that integrates resources and expertise across disciplines and institutional settings. The project will engage with nine diverse interdisciplinary use cases through four iterative stages: 1. assessing current data practices, 2. developing automated and "human-in-the-loop" workflows, 3. implementing workflows by use case teams, and 4. engaging graduate students and professional experts to collaboratively evaluate the project. Ultimately, this work will generate deep knowledge of data practices in interdisciplinary research, engage the library and archives communities in collaborative development and evaluation, and enhance the long-term sustainability of these complex datasets and their necessary infrastructures.
