Total Funding to Date



  • Allen Renear

The primary goal of the Data Curation Education Program (DCEP) is to design a program of graduate study that can serve as a model for training data curators (DCs) within the context of a larger LIS education. Secondarily, we intend to integrate this graduate training with ongoing research and practice to produce specialists that understand the research culture and can make substantive contributions to the mission of scientific, humanities, social science, and cultural heritage institutions and libraries.
