The Data Curation Project set out to test and expand the University Libraries programmatic efforts to support research data management needs on campus by establishing a fixed-term data curation pilot. This pilot utilized our current suite of services and expertise in the Libraries with the objective of developing archiving “workflows” for a variety of types of research data. Specifically, in eight months, this project resulted in 1) a data curation workflow, 2) 3-5 pilot research datasets archived in the University Digital Conservancy, and 3) and a summary report describing the successes and shortcomings of this project.
