International Survey of Academic & Research Library Data Curation Practices, 2016-17 Edition
We surveyed college and university and other research libraries in the United Kingdom and United States to find out more about their approach to data curation. Ten libraries were surveyed in each country. Two non-academic libraries with profiles similar to academic libraries were also included.
The study presents a broad range of data on budgets, staffing, assessment, technology use, interdepartmental cooperation, metadata development, data security, discovery tools, marketing, archiving, data preservation and other aspects of data curation management. Some of the participating institutions include: Tulane, Syracuse University, the University of New Mexico, Imperial College London, the University of Edinburgh, the University of Bath, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, the University of London, the Center for Research Libraries and Arizona State University.
Primary Research Group publishes research reports, surveys, and benchmarking studies for businesses, colleges, libraries, law firms, hospitals, museums, and other institutions. Based on substantial primary and secondary research, our benchmarking studies allow institutions to compare their budgets, managerial decisions, technology purchases, and strategic visions to those of their peers.
