Distributed research. Distributed data. Distributed approaches. Distinct solutions.
The “data deluge” has created problems for researchers in a range of domains (from e-Science to Digital Humanities), and library science has been recognized by the NSF, NEH and others as having a critical role in helping researchers, institutions and organizations address it. The Distributed Data Curation Center investigates issues and problems related to making research data available, and collaborates to develop solutions for research data curation, management, dissemination and preservation in distributed environments.
