In this planning project, the Indiana University–Indianapolis will enhance the training of library and information science (LIS) professionals by creating a community data curation curriculum program that builds LIS expertise and contributes to community well-being. The project team will evaluate, update, and disseminate the Community Data Curation Pilot Curriculum to train future LIS professionals through strategic partnerships with community organizations, data curation educators, and data curation practitioners. This work will extend the current understanding of data curation competencies to the context of community data; engage strategic stakeholders (educators, practitioners, and community organizations) in the process of curriculum design to reflect their specific needs; and design a data curation pilot curriculum to fill the current gap in data curation education to include community data curation competencies.
