Curating for Quality: Ensuring Data Quality to Enable New Science

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on October 26, 2012

“This paper is included on page 53 of the final report for the NSF Workshop, Curating for Quality: Ensuring Data Quality to Enable New Science, that took place 10-11 September 2012. The workshop was sponsored by the National Science Foundation and hosted by UNC School of Information & Library Science. Some takeaways from the Erway/Lavoie paper include:

  • Allocation of digital preservation resources needs to be ongoing over time.

  • Key tradeoffs are involved in allocating resources to digital preservation that should be recognized upfront.
  • The management of these tradeoffs should be informed by the risks that could potentially impact the preservation process over time.
  • It is unwise to attempt to replicate a broad range of data curation services, infrastructure and expertise at every institution.”
