Title:Issues in Humanities Data Curation
Author(s):Muñoz, Trevor; Renear, Allen H.
Subject(s):Data Curation
Data Workforce Needs
Abstract:As both the materials and the analytical practices of humanities research become increasingly digital, the challenge of sustaining meaningful access to the outputs of humanities research becomes more urgent. Continuing technological change and new institutional pressures require a sustainable commitment to curate humanities data throughout its entire lifecycle from creation to re-use and long-term preservation. Success will depend on coordinated, collaborative efforts and arrangements amongst scholars, librarians, administrators, funders, and their organizations. This document is intended to provide background and provoke discussions about the skills, professional roles, training, and institutional support needed for curation of humanities research materials. Each section contains questions for further exploration and debate that we hope will provide participants with opportunities to share their own experiences and knowledge.
