The ICPSR Summer Program is offering the following week-long course this year focused on curating and managing research data. Please click on the course title below for a full description and information on enrolling.

Curating and Managing Research Data for Re-use<http://www.icpsr.umich.edu/icpsrweb/sumprog/courses/0149>, July 28-August 1, 2014

This workshop, taught by Louise Corti (UK Data Archive), Jared Lyle (ICPSR), and Veerle Van den Eynden (UK Data Archive), will explore and apply the concepts and benefits of life cycle principles for data curation, from selecting and preparing data for archiving to optimizing and promoting data for reuse. ICPSR social science quantitative datasets and UK Data Archive qualitative and cross-disciplinary data collections will serve as case studies and participants will track the datasets as they make their way through the data assessment, review, processing, curation and publication pipeline.  Participants will learn about and gain proficiency in the full range of life cycle activities: data review and preparation; confidential data management; effective documentation practices; how to create, comply with, and evaluate required data management plans; digital repository requirements and assessment; data dissemination and publication; and running user support and promotional activities for data. Emphasis will be placed on hands-on exercises demonstrating curation practices and on small group discussions for sharing local experiences and learning from others.

The workshop is aimed at individuals interested or actively engaged in the curation and management of research data, in view of data sharing and reuse, particularly data librarians, data archivists, data producers and stewards with responsibilities for data management.
