DCP and DAF collaboration

The DCC is pleased to announce that we are involved in an IMLS grant with the Data Curation Profiles team at Purdue University Libraries. 

We came together through our shared interest in engaging researchers to identify their support requirements for Research Data Management. We had ideas for a reusable questionbank based on the various surveys that people had developed when they were implementing the DCC's Data Asset Framework, and found big overlaps with plans for taking forward the Data Curation Profiles toolkit. 

We plan to build a tool to bridge the gap between data producers and data curators, and join up the active phases of data mangagement with the longer-term curation and preservation activities.
