Colloquium DANS-OCLC: Are you curating data with reuse in mind?

DANS and OCLC cordially invite you for the colloquium on Wednesday 19 October in Leiden. In this talk Ixchel Faniel will discuss her research.

Curating data for reuse is challenging. Data producers want to easily manage, curate, and share the range of outputs they produce throughout the data lifecycle.  Data consumers need to easily discover, access and reuse that range of outputs. The challenge is due in part to greater focus on data producers rather than data consumers; there has been more concern with building supply rather than understanding demand. What can data reusers tell us about data curation?

About the speaker

Ixchel M. Faniel, Ph.D., is a Research Scientist at OCLC Research with prior experience at the University of Michigan, IBM, and Andersen Consulting (now Accenture). Her interests include improving how people discover, access, and use/reuse content. She examines how academics manage, share, and reuse research data and librarians’ experiences providing research support services. Her research has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), and National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).

By studying data reuse within academic communities, one of Faniel's objectives is to use knowledge about researchers’ data reuse practices to inform the activities and services researchers and information professionals perform to prepare data for reuse.
