Canadian Data Curation Forum Final Report Available Now
Portage is pleased to have published the Final Report from the Canadian Data Curation Forum (CDCF), held in October 2019. The report includes suggestions for a national approach to data curation services in Canada. These suggestions are representative of the perspectives voiced at the Community-Building Forum at CDCF. This SSHRC-funded event was a collaboration between CARL Portage and McMaster University Library. It brought together library data specialists, research data managers, as well as discipline and functional experts from a range of institutions and organizations to identify the current challenges of research data curation and ways in which a national approach could address data curation needs and support best practices.
