Data Curation Curriculum Search Engine
The Data Curation Curriculum Search is a database of programs and courses covering data curation and closely related fields. The tool and all research has been conducted by the Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois.
This site is part of the broader impacts goals of the Data Conservancy project, a National Science Foundation collaboration under the Sustainable Digital Data Preservation and Access Network Partners (DataNet) program under the Office of Cyberinfrastructure. The larger Data Conservancy vision entails scientific data curation as a means to collect, organize, validate, and preserve data so that researchers can address research challenges facing society as a whole.
To help further this vision, this site was designed to:
- help researchers, administrators, and educators understand more generally the scope of education in the data curation area;
- support the search for collaborators in the area of data curation; *help determine how peers are defining key terms across institutions; and
- as an awareness and potential research tool.
