Business Librarian Lisa Zilinski was invited to present at the Data Curation Profiles Symposium organized by Purdue University Libraries on September 24th.

Purdue University Libraries’ Institute of Museum and Library Services funded grant, “Understanding Curation through the use of Data Curation Profiles” provided workshops in using the Profile to over 360 librarians. The goal of this project was to provide librarians with the knowledge, training and means to engage faculty in discussions about their research data, how they work with and manage their data, and their needs in organizing, sharing, publishing, or preserving this data. The symposium was a wrap-up of the research that went into the project. Practitioners talked about their experiences discussing and using the Profile.

Zilinski presented on the work she accomplished on data management plans for USF in Lakeland faculty, in collaboration with Library Assistant Sonia Wade Lorenz.
