Digital Curation 101 Lite: How to Manage Research Data

This event took place on June 16, 2010 Proceedings About the course Research Councils and funding bodies are increasingly requiring evidence of adequate and appropriate provisions for data management and curation in new grant funding applications. This one-day workshop provided an introduction to digital curation, the range of activities and roles that should be considered when planning and implementing new projects, and an overview of tools that can assist with curation activities. Audience The target audience for these workshops are researchers and those who support research activity (data managers, information specialists) with funding body data management and curation mandates to fulfil. The Oxford DC 101 Lite workshop brought together researchers representing a wide range of disciplines with research support staff. A key goal was the integration of these communities of practice to share their experiences and to identify where, when and how they can best cooperate to meet data curation challenges. Costs In cooperation with the Sudamih project at the University of Oxford, registration was free for Oxford University staff. All other participants were charged £50 which included lunch and all course materials. Participants for all DC 101 Lite course are limited to 30 to provide a good environment for discussion.
