Is your library interested in highlighting research data generated at your institution? Are you invested in helping researchers share and discover data that is not readily accessible elsewhere online? Come learn about implementing an institutional data catalog and the collaborating group of librarians that support it at an information session at MLA’18 in Atlanta.
The Data Catalog Collaboration Project (DCCP) is a group of six academic libraries working to highlight institutional biomedical research data using an open source data catalog. Together the DCCP develops metadata, improves software, addresses data sharing use cases, and builds documentation to make biomedical research data more discoverable.
In this session, participants from the DCCP will discuss their own institutional data catalogs, the challenges they have faced, and their successes. The session will include an open question and answer period to discuss the process of working together to plan, implement, and sustain an institutional data catalog.
Data Catalog Collaboration Information Session
