Share your subject, functional or data expertise and help extend library curation capacity!  


Now accepting applications to attend the Fall 2018 Specialized Data Curation Workshop, the first of three workshops hosted by the Data Curation Network.  The workshop will be held October 17-18, 2018 directly after the DLF Forum 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.  


This free 1.5 day training session will bring together library data specialists and discipline/functional experts in a peer-to-peer learning environment for specialized data curation.


Attendees will:

  1. Increase understanding of data curation practices and tools in various disciplines, data types, and formats
  2. Share expertise and enhance curation capacity for librarians nationwide
  3. Meet like-minded colleagues who are interested in building and extending curation practices at their institutions

Who should attend:


Workshop applications are now open! There is no cost for the workshop, but we are limited in the number of attendees we can support. To ensure a good mix of library data staff, subject specialists, and functional experts we've established an application and selection process for the first workshop.


Scholarships are available for participants who would like to attend the workshop but have limited resources. We encourage scholarship applications from students, new professionals, and members of underrepresented groups.


These workshops are made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services RE-85-18-0040-18 and with support from the partner institutions in the Data Curation Network,
