Data Curation in the University: Libraries, Research, and Learning

Workshop date: March 25, 2013

Venue: JNU Convention Centre, New Delhi, India


This one-day workshop will be held at Jawaharlal Nehru University on March 25, 2013, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Cyberinfrastructure and “Big Data” represent a paradigm shift in science that is transforming the research process to focus on the computation, analysis, curation, and reuse of digital data on a massive scale.  What are the implications for universities in terms of their libraries, research, and teaching?

This workshop brings together a select group of senior librarians, research and data center managers, cyberinfrastructure researchers, and educators to explore these issues and begin to integrate data curation into their practice and services.

Participants will be provided with:

* an introduction to data curation in the context of institutional repositories with perspectives from librarians from India and the United States;

* the opportunity to collaborate on Databib and help represent research data from India in a global catalog of data repositories;

* a venue to discuss and share questions about new roles and emerging practices relating to research data;

* an understanding of the current state of the art in data-enabled cyberinfrastructure and teaching in the United States and India.

Thanks to support from Jawaharlal Nehru University and the Office of Engagement at Purdue University, there is no charge to participate for attendees. Lunch and tea are provided. Visit http://databib.org/workshop to request registration.
