(24 March 2014) The week-long course at the University of Essex, UK, is offered under the Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) Summer Program. Dates are 28 July to 1 August 2014.
This workshop, taught by Louise Corti (UK Data Archive), Jared Lyle (ICPSR), and Veerle Van den Eynden (UK Data Archive), will explore and apply the concepts and benefits of life cycle principles for data curation, from selecting and preparing data for archiving to optimizing and promoting data for reuse.
Emphasis will be placed on hands-on exercises demonstrating curation practices and on small group discussions for sharing local experiences and learning from others.
The workshop is aimed at individuals interested or actively engaged in the curation and management of research data, in view of data sharing and reuse, particularly data librarians, data archivists, data producers and stewards with responsibilities for data management.
Participants will leave with knowledge and experience of how to review, assess, manage, curate, and promote data collections for long-term preservation and access.
