The Institute of Museum and Library Services funded grant, "Understanding Curation through the use of Data Curation Profiles" provided workshops in using the Profile to over 360 librarians. The goal of this project was to provide librarians with the knowledge, training and means to engage faculty in discussions about their research data, how they work with and manage their data, and their needs in organizing, sharing, publishing, or preserving this data. The symposium will be a wrap-up of the research that went into the project.

The schedule of panels and presentations is as follows:
