Title A model to integrate data curation services with additional campus services related to research
Date 2012
Description The University of Utah has three libraries: main, health sciences, and law. The librarians at the main and health sciences libraries are working together to improve current services and develop new services for researchers. A recent survey of research resources on campus and on the University website has revealed a plethora of access points and providers of resources and services. Terminology, audience, and areas of responsibility are not clear. Librarians are working to consolidate, organize, and clarify information about these resources and services based on the research/data life cycle. In addition, physical space in both libraries is being set aside for research oriented services, collaboration, and technical resources. The University has built a data center and the libraries are testing the current repository, USpace to determine the feasibility of using it as the interface to a data repository. As a result data curation and data services will be included within the new library spaces being developed for research assistance. These services include creating data management plans, finding data repositories for both the acquisition and deposition data, and referrals to computer programmers and statisticians when needed. Future plans include developing workshops covering best practices of data management and how to create good metadata.
