Session Title

`The Challenges of Making Digital Research Data Accessible

Description

Disseminating, archiving, preserving, and even curating the digital results of grant-funded research is a growing user need for academic institutions. The University of Minnesota Libraries are piloting data curation services using existing tools and infrastructure, including our well-established institutional repository. By developing common workflows for accession, ingest, description, access, and preservation of digital data assets, we hope to better understand the variety and scale of our users' data, big and small. Our approach builds on the metadata expertise and institutional repository infrastructures already in place - making this approach a practical first step for many academic libraries.
