ItemThe Data Conservancy: A Web Science View of Data Curation(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-02-25) Choudhury, SayeedThe Data Conservancy is one of two initial awards through the National Science Foundation's DataNet Program. The Data Conservancy shares a common vision that data curation is not an end, but rather a means to provide persistent access to a variety of scientific data for addressing grand challenge research problems. In addition to the infrastructure development that lies at the core of the Data Conservancy, the project team is directly focusing on a semantic view of data and other forms of content as compound objects that describe a full picture of the scientific process. This presentation will feature an overview of the Data Conservancy with an emphasis on the data framework aspects of the project. ItemInitiatives from the NSF's DataNet Program: DataONE and the Data Conservancy(EDUCAUSE, 2009) Lynch, Clifford; Choudhury, SayeedThis session, from the EDUCAUSE 2009 Annual Conference, features reports on two initiatives from the National Science Foundation's DataNet Program. DataNet Observation Network for Earth (DataONE) represents a new virtual organization that will enable new science and knowledge creation through universal access to data about life on earth and the environment that sustains it. The Data Conservancy (DC) embraces a shared vision: data curation is not an end, but rather a means to collect, organize, validate, and preserve data to address the grand research challenges that face society. This session is presented by Sayeed Choudhury, Associate Dean for Library Digital Program at the Johns Hopkins University; and Clifford Lynch, Executive Director for the Coalition for Networked Information.
