EIDCSR Workshop – Oxford – 29.03.2010

This proved to be a very useful and thought provoking workshop. It was interesting to hear the different approaches taken by the Universities of Oxford, Melbourne and Edinburgh in tackling data curation.

Points taken away from the day:

There is lots of information out there – the challenge is: how to package it up to make it relevant to researchers?

Often those engaged in data curation are working in isolation – how can we bring these people together, to share expertise?

It is recognised that policies need to be implementable – i.e. backed up with discipline specific guidance, so that is makes sense to researchers.

How do we get researchers thinking about preservation at the beginning of the lifecycle, rather than at the end?

Lots to think about!
