Data Curation Primers: Expanding the community curation toolkit

The Data Curation Network presents a new resource to add to your data curation toolkit. “Data curation primers” are a concise, actionable resource to assist data curators in adding value to a dataset. These evolving documents detail a specific subject, disciplinary area or curation task, and can be used as a reference or jump-start to curating research data.

The first set of these primers, authored by teams of experts, have just been published and cover the following data types/formats: Microsoft Excel; Microsoft Access; Geodatabases; netCDF; Jupyter Notebooks, SPSS; and Wordpress.com websites.

Data curation primers were the direct output of an IMLS-funded workshop series hosted by the partners in the Data Curation Network (DCN) and leverage the expertise of data curators nation-wide. Attend this webinar to get an update on the DCN, a little history about the DCN Education initiative, a demo of the newest releases of the curation primers, and some ideas of how you can incorporate this resource into your workflows and share your own expertise.
