Mr. Woods will present, Working with born-digital materials in the BitCurator Environment. He will provide an overview of how tools in the BitCurator environment can assist professionals working with born-digital materials, particularly those who are working on legacy fixed and removable media. The BitCurator Environment is a Ubuntu-derived Linux distribution geared specifically towards the needs of archivists, librarians, and other curators. It includes a suite of open source digital forensics and data analysis tools to help collecting institutions acquire, explore, and report on files found in legacy and modern file systems. Ongoing development of the environment is supported by members of the BitCurator Consortium (https://www.bitcuratorconsortium.org/). 

Kam Woods' presentation will be following by a question and answer session and a brief business meeting about the work of the DCIG.

Curating Research Data: How We Manage It Today and Why We Should Collaborate in the Future

Monday, February 27  |  2-3pm CST

Presenter: Lisa Johnston, University of Minnesota

As reproducibility and data sharing emerge as key issues for academic researchers, the data management services offered by the library must grow from consultation and guidance to hands-on data curation and service. For two years the University of Minnesota Libraries have offered a robust service involving multiple data curation specialists that curate data deposited into our Data Repository for the University of Minnesota (DRUM) and appropriate subject data repositories. Data curation steps, including quality assurance, file integrity checks, documentation review, metadata creation for discoverability, and file transformations into archival formats, are value-add services that enhance digital data for long-term preservation and reuse. This talk will explore the data curation workflows and staffing in place at our institution and also highlight procedures in place at disciplinary and institutional such as Dryad, ICPSR, Yale, and the U of New Mexico. These experiences are collected in a new book titled Curating Research Data: A Handbook of Current Practice, released as an open access ebook by the American College and Research Libraries in January 2017.
