OCLC Research to Co-host "A Context-driven Approach to Data Curation for Reuse" Workshop on 22 February in Amsterdam

#oclcresearch #IDCC16

Are you approaching data management and curation with reuse in mind? Do you know what kinds of contextual information data reusers need, where they get it, and why they need it?  What are the practical approaches and tradeoffs to data curation given the needs of reusers, and repositories? Attend this free, interactive workshop sponsored by OCLC Research to learn how a context-driven approach developed during the DIPIR Project can be used to inform data curation.

Workshop organizers will highlight findings from our cross-disciplinary context model, engage participants in a discussion of data reusers and repositories in different context needs, and invite reactions from a data publisher and a data librarian on trade-offs made during data curation and the potential implications for reuse.  

The intended audience for this half-day workshop includes digital repository managers, data center staff, researchers who reuse data, and others who collect, manage and store digital information.

Register to attend or see the "A Context-driven Approach to Data Curation for Reuse" Workshop page for more information.

The workshop takes place during the 11th International Digital Curation Conference at the Mövenpick Hotel, Amsterdam City Centre. The theme of this year's conference is "Visible data, invisible infrastructure."
