As the amount of scientific data increases and the potential for sharing and reusing that data dramatically expands, more professionals are needed to help scientists manage and preserve the information that they generate. Syracuse University, partnering with the libraries of Cornell University, seeks to educate a new generation of science librarians by developing a digital curation curriculum that will emphasize the management and preservation of science-related information. In addition to curriculum planning, the project will recruit and provide scholarships to students with a background in the sciences.
