Duke University Libraries—in partnership with Pennsylvania State University, Washington University in St. Louis, Princeton University, the University of Minnesota (members of the Data Curation Network: DCN), and the Association of Research Libraries—will develop an enhanced, specialized curriculum for data curation training for academic library and archives staff. By developing more in-depth and customized training and resources in geospatial, scientific images, code, and simulation data, the team addresses the demands of academic librarians and archivists to better support researchers at their institutions. Building on existing DCN curriculum, this project will prioritize ethical, equitable, and accessible considerations for research data curation; make the resulting educational materials openly accessible online for future use and adaptation; and host a pilot workshop to assess the workshop materials, build knowledge in these areas, and strengthen community engagement.
