Information professionals working in innovative Research Data Services programs are currently developing programs and protocols focused on the core data needs of the researcher. A successful data curation program teaches researchers how to plan, collect, manage and organize the data they collect, and establishes a collaborative workflow between researchers, information professionals, and IT departments. In recognition of the changing research data environment, the University of California has dedicated both financial and personnel resources to meet the challenges that this changing environment presents. The Library Research Data Curation Program (RDCP) at UC San Diego was developed to support the work of campus researchers throughout the data life cycle from data management planning, accessibility to data through sharing and discovery, to long-term preservation strategies. This presentation highlights the exciting two year developments of the UC San Diego Library Research Data Curation Program. The presenter will discuss the UC San Diego Library's Research Data Curation Program services and tools currently available to support the core data needs of our campus research community. The presentation will describe: ● Planning, development and implementation of Research Data Curation services including the program's current focus on outreach and training. ● Brief overview of featured research data collections currently available in the Library Digital Collections discovery tool.
