The Data Curation Profiles is a toolkit that provides librarians, professors, researchers, and any information expert with the resources necessary to describe the characteristics of a data set, including but not limited to: the origin of the data collection, key elements of the data, and the life cycle of that data that exists within the research project. This toolkit was designed to address the issues with researchers sharing data with others, facilitating scholarly communication. According to the creators of the Data Curation Profiles, this toolkit “is meant to help launch discussions between librarians and other information professionals at their institutions.” This tool enables data creators to: 1) Guide a discussion about data with other researchers, 2) Gain insight into areas of attention in data management, 3) Assess information needs related to data collections, and 4) Create a starting point for curating and preserving data.
