Report on Academic Data Management and Curation Practices and Needs: The Problem of Data

Two new reports on research funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation have been published by CLIR (Council on Library and Information Resources)

The Problem of Data: Data Management and Curation Practices Among University Researchers, by Lori Jahnke and Andrew Asher,


Data Curation Education: A Snapshot, by Spencer Keralis

Jahnke and Asher explore workflows and methodologies at a variety of academic data curation sites, and Keralis delves into the academic milieu of library and information schools that offer instruction in data curation. Their conclusions point to the urgent need for a reliable and increasingly sophisticated professional cohort to support data-intensive research in our colleges, universities, and research centers.
