Abstract:Attention to data management at Therkildsen Field Station at Emiquon (TFSE) began in 2013. The University of Illinois Springfield built this research field station by the Illinois River between Lewistown and Havana on land owned by The Nature Conservancy called Emiquon Preserve. TFSE became a member of a partnership of university, government, and non-profit organizations that supports research activities including floodplain restoration. An ethnographic investigation studied data practices and the introduction of data management at the station as well as at Emiquon Preserve. Site history and data-related topics based on interviews of participants are presented. Themes relating to data activities are presented along with observations of existing digital infrastructure arrangements. This case study provides an example of data management planning by scientific research participants for a site-based, multi-partner community.
