Curated by David Minor, Research Data Curation Program, UC San Diego Library

Series six will highlight details on the implementation of a new curation program at the University of California San Diego Library. For more than two years, librarians and computing professionals worked with researchers from diverse disciplines to conduct a pilot program to pinpoint research data curation practices that could be used across campus. The series will present in-depth looks at the technologies, metadata services and decision making processes behind the program presented by the people who developed them. Researchers who participated in the program will also speak on their goals and experiences. There are 3 webinars in this series:
