Abstract:The Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign expanded its Data Curation Education Program (DCEP) 1, a specialization within the ALA-accredited master’s program, to include humanities data. This project (DCEP-H, located at the Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship (CIRSS), developed curricular content, recruited humanities-oriented students, supported exemplary and underrepresented scholars with fellowships, managed internship placements, organized a summer institute for in-service professionals, created an online community-based guide to resources, conducted needs assessment, and held a humanities data curation summit. The GSLIS Data Curation Education Program now focuses equally on humanities data and includes as many humanities-oriented students as science-oriented students. The project also brought data curation education to the attention of key audiences: the LIS, data curation, and digital humanities communities, and led to educational and research initiatives.
