Data Curation Profiles (DCP) Workshop

Austin, Texas: October 3, 2011 

Workshop Instructor: Jake Carlson, Purdue University Libraries

Workshop Description

  • Overview: DCP is basically a needs assessment methodology with a structured toolkit (series of recommended questions for gathering key information). The focus is on small to medium sized data sets of science and social science disciplines. Workshop provided tips for interviewing faculty on research needs, reviewed steps in the process and discussed issues in the general field of e-science data management.
  • There is a close correlation between the DCP methodology and general research ethnography studies.
  • An important distinction of this profile, is that its purpose is to represent only the researcher's viewpoint. The profile then may be used to support a recommended approach to data management for a particular faculty's data. 
  • Future Library plans may include modeling DCP for local use, such as blending aspects of the Toolkit with either the ARL's E-Science Institute recommended activities or for use in a custom developed UX study, and sharing profiles and experiences with the Purdue Curation Center.
