Works in Progress Webinar: What Data Reusers Want and How Data Curators Can Use It to Their Advantage
Join this webinar to learn about the different types of context information needed to preserve data’s meaning in ways that support data reuse over time and to discuss when and how to best capture this information over the course of the data’s lifecycle.

What makes for successful data reuse? According to the FAIR Data Principles, the data need to be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable, but what does reusable mean from a researcher’s point of view? Over 100 researchers from the social science, zoology, and archaeology communities were asked what information they need to evaluate data for reuse.
In this webinar, Ixchel M. Faniel, lead author of the study, is joined by Lisa Johnston, Director of the Data Repository for the University of Minnesota (DRUM) and principal investigator of the Data Curation Network project. Faniel highlights 12 different types of context information researchers need about data production, data reuse, and the data repository. Johnston discusses the implications the findings have on data curation throughout the data lifecycle, with emphasis on the practical aspects that data curators need to be aware of when preparing data for reuse in a repository setting.
This webinar will be of interest to academic and research librarians, archivists, digital curators, data managers, and students doing or wanting to know more about research data management.

Works in Progress: An OCLC Research Occasional Webinar Series
These webinars are exclusively for OCLC Research Library Partners, but the recordings are publicly available to all.
Works in Progress: An OCLC Research Occasional Webinar Series to talk about work happening in OCLC Research – we'd like to present our work informally and get feedback from you, our Partners. We'd also like this to be a venue for Partner institutions. What are you working on that everyone should know about? What input would help you move forward? Let us know!
