2 a centre of expertise in data curation and preservation DC 101 Lite, September 10, 2010, London DC 101 Lite aims and objectives Data management and curation are becoming more and more integral for successful research bids. This short course aims to introduce participants to the range and nature of roles and activities required to maintain access to data over time. Ultimately, tools and approaches will evolve over time, but if participants understand the bigger picture they will be in a better position to make critical decisions that best reflect their individual needs. This course will introduce participants to some of the current tools and approaches and will focus on drawing from a range of stakeholders’ perspectives in identifying and addressing data curation requirements.

3 a centre of expertise in data curation and preservation DC 101 Lite, September 10, 2010, London DC 101 does: provide an introduction to key curation activities and issues focus on developing critical thinking amongst researchers and research support staff DC101 doesn’t: tell you how to do curation – that will vary for each of you favour any one approach over another – all have value for different needs

BUT – the model is an ideal view of curation activity. The reality is that people will have different access points to the model depending on their current needs. You may not address all of the steps at this point. That is ok! The model can be equally effective in identifying gaps in service provision and support.

5 a centre of expertise in data curation and preservation DC 101 Lite, September 10, 2010, London The Audience The target audience for these workshops are researchers and those who support research activity (data managers, information specialists, IT specialists) with funding body or institutional data management and curation mandates to fulfil. A key goal is the integration of these communities of practice to share their experiences and to identify points of intervention – i.e., where, when and how these groups can best interact to meet data curation challenges. We hope that researchers leave with a more thorough understanding of the range and nature of data management and curation activities that should be considered when planning new research projects and to better equipped to work with the information managers and IT specialists in their institutions to identify their particular requirements and to jointly develop and implement sound data management and curation plans. We hope that information specialists and IT specialists have been provided with some key messages that they can take back to their institutions to motivate researchers to get involved in curation activities and to be able to identify and communicate researchers requirements.
