Paper: "An Applied Approach to Data Curation Training at the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR)", Jared Lyle, Mary Vardigan, ICPSR, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, U.S.A., Jacob Carlson, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, U.S.A., Ron Nakao, Stanford University, Stanford, CA, U.S.A.

Abstract—ICPSR recently developed two new training initiatives in digital curation: a week-long applied data curation workshop where participants learn the theories and methods of data curation using the ICPSR “processing pipeline” as framework, and an ongoing virtual working group of data librarians that discusses similar core data curation topics while giving participants independent access to curate their own data using ICPSR’s processing environment and tools. This paper discusses the background, structure, and lessons learned from these new training initiatives.
