DataAtRisk.org Workshop

Limit: 50 participants

The DataAtRisk.org Workshop will introduce participants to the NSF Science Gateways project: DataAtRisk.org through hands-on activities with data that is actually at risk. Workshop leaders will introduce the DataAtRisk.org platform, a data help desk for nominating data assets for in-depth data curation, and guide two tracks of data curation activities to highlight different user roles (Advocates and Heros).

DataAtRisk.org responds to the clear need for a community-building application by connecting data in need to data expertise and resources. Data owners, managers, or others nominate assets for targeted preservation action by data management experts and volunteers, and create a community of Data Heroes who ensure the longevity of data products essential to high quality research.

DataAtRisk.org is a web platform that creates and leverages a commons-based approach to data stewardship and preservation. Fundamentally a networking tool that connects users with data in need to data stewardship experts, DataAtRisk.org allows users to nominate or identify threatened data with substantial research value for a team of volunteers to evaluate, curate, and deposit in appropriate data repositories. This workshop will be split into two tracks according to the design of the DataAtRisk.org system: one for participants to evaluate datasets for curation requirements and another for participants to work in groups to execute pre-identified curation “tasks.”
  • Audience: The DataAtRisk.org Workshop is suitable for participants with any level of data curation skills, including those new to the topic.
  • Technology Requirements: Participants will not require any additional equipment or setup beyond a computer and internet access.
