The Data Curation Network (DCN) serves as the “human layer” in the data repository stack and seamlessly connects local data sets to expert data curators via a cross-institutional shared staffing model. Our vision for a fully operational DCN is to:

  1. provide expert data curation services for Network partners and end users,
  2. create and openly share data curation procedures and best practices,
  3. support training and development opportunities for an emerging data curator professional community, and
  4. expand into a sustainable entity that grows beyond our initial partner institutions.
