Universities and colleges should consider an institution-wide approach to developing services for managing and curating research data. This paper identifies service areas and includes a framework for institutions to document current research data curation services and responsibilities.
In October 2015, an NSF-funded meeting brought together representatives from campuses, regional research and education networking organizations, and national computational facilities to discuss current limitations to expanding access to advanced CI resources and to identify ways to better coordinate their efforts.
