Feedback form is now closed.
Curation, particularly of data, can feel like an amorphous process. The lack of clear definition may prevent library staff from being willing to engage with it. Since data management is a new frontier in digital libraries, and data curation is an important component of it, it is important to unpack the process to enable more library staff to engage with it.

In this presentation, we define data curation in a set of specific steps and actions. We give concrete examples of how we have applied them and discuss the difficulty level of each step as well as the skillset required to undertake it. We discuss how these steps contribute to our goals of making data discoverable, citable, comprehensible, and reusable.
