PASIG Webinar - Building Communities and Services in Support of Data-Intensive Research 
Original Broadcast:  August 20, 2013

Information technology and resources are an integral and indispensable part of the contemporary academic enterprise. In particular, technological advances have nurtured a new paradigm of data-intensive research. However, far too much of this activity still takes place in silos, to the detriment of open scholarly inquiry, integrity, and advancement. To counteract this tendency, the University of California Curation Center (UC3) has been developing and deploying a comprehensive suite of curation services that facilitate widespread data management, preservation, publication, sharing, and reuse. Through these services UC3 is engaging with new communities of use: in addition to its traditional stakeholders in cultural heritage memory organizations, e.g., libraries, museums, and archives, the UC3 service suite is now attracting significant adoption by research projects, laboratories, and individual faculty researchers. This webinar will present an introduction to five specific services DMPTool, DataUp, EZID, Merritt, Web Archiving Service (WAS) applicable to data curation throughout the scholarly lifecycle, two recent initiatives in collaboration with UC campuses, UC Berkeley Research Hub and UC San Francisco DataShare, and the ways in which they encourage and promote new communities of practice and greater transparency in scholarly research.
