Data curation services models: Johns Hopkins University Barbara E. Pralle RDAP March 23, 2012
Exploring the data curation waters JHU DMS (Ripple across domains) DRDC/Data Conservancy (Deep Dives)
Data curation as continuum • Widely ranging and emerging domains • Existence of data standards inconsistentIndividualResearcher • Researcher’s required to prepare dmp • Researchers seek to use each others’ data Emerging research • Researchers recognize value in aggregated data clusters • Consistent standards for data deposited • 3rd party management of repository or archive Establishedcommunities • Development of discovery tools Note: Inspired by Palmer, C. (2011, July 7). Data Curation and Research Libraries. Address at the Data Curation Symposium, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore MD
How did we get here?• 1995 – Digitization of Levy and Roman de la Rose collections.• 1997 – Creation of DKC (later the Digital Research and Curation Center.)• 1999 – Established the Entrepreneurial Library Program.• 2005 – Deep curation needs explored with SDSSII. Review of repository infrastructure and platforms.• 2008 - Data archiving partnerships.• 2009 – Data Conservancy NSF award and work begins on use cases• 2010 – DC Sustainability Team - DMP pilots• 2011 – Launch of the JHU Data Management Services

JHU Data Management Services scopeData Management Planning while preparing an NSF proposal:• Understand all data products• Review operational data management• Questionnaire• Discuss archival data management needs and options• Review domain repository options• Provide JHU Data Archive information• Clarify language and help researcher iterate a 2 page plan
JHU Data Management Services Scope continuedArchiving of research data:• In-depth data management plan preparation• Recommend metadata standards• Transfer data into JHU Data Archive• Manage data for researcher so he/she can find, access, and use.• Archive conducts integrity checking and format migration in the future.• Archive will enable tools such as feature extraction.
JHU Data Management Services Scope continuedJHU Data Management Services does not provide:• Unlimited archiving of data over time• Operational data management• In-depth curation of the data• Written data management plans for researchers to edit• Boilerplate language for data management plans• Not currently, data management solutions for encumbered data (IRB, security, etc.)

Phased launch and future expansion• Jan – June 2011 – piloted DMP support across university• July 2011 – formal launch of NSF proposal DMP support for 4 schools funding service• October 2011 – established JHU Data Archive (DCS instance)• Future: a) expand beyond NSF, b) expand to other schools across university, c) possibly provide additional operational data management planning, d) expansion of data archiving services for growing individual or domain collections, e) possible provision of services to other institutions who strategically choose not to set up their own operation
