RDAP “Ask me Anything” town hall on “Thriving as a Data Information Professional”

Dear Colleagues,

The RDAP Education and Resource Committee invites you to join in the first of the “Ask me Anything” town hall meetings on the topic of “Thriving as a Data Information Professional” to share your experiences and expertise and to get help for questions you have about your daily work as a data information professional. If you are considering data information literacy as a part or the whole of your future profession or are already in the field, you have questions that need answers or have experiences and expertise that can answer someone else’s question. Please join your RDAP colleagues on Oct 30th from 3:30 to 4:30 EST via the following link for what promises to be a lively discussion on the vast world of being a data information professional.

On behalf of the committee,

The RDAP Education and Resources team is excited to announce an upcoming webinar, “Radical collaboration in practice: Data Curation Network Update.”

Date and time: July 8, 2-3PM EST

On behalf of the DCN team, presenters include:

  • Lisa Johnston (U of Minnesota),

The Data Curation Network project is now officially up and running. Watch this webinar to hear about how we prepared the people, systems, and procedures in place in order to curate data sets across 9 institutions. Each dataset submitted to the Network is assigned to a curator who has the domain and/or software skills to expertly apply CURATE steps to check, understand, and recommend actions that will ensure the data are of long-term reuse value. This project update will focus on the outputs of Year 1 of our a three-year implementation phase funded by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. We will share lessons learned for putting radical collaboration into practice that will be of broad interest to the RDAP community.

The webinar is free. For more info and to register, go to
