A challenge of developing and maintaining a data curation service is in making choices about where to invest limited resources and understanding likely uses for the data. An EDUCAUSE working group brought together libraries, IT, and archives experts to create a strategic framework for institutional research data curation. This framework offers a definition for research data curation and an associated taxonomy of components. Noting the range and scope of these components, the working group realized that comprehensive research data curation requires collaboration across the entire institution. The working group framework includes a tool that will allow institutions of varying sizes, characteristics and capacity to identify the roles and/or units within the institutions currently providing research data curation support and to highlight existing gaps or resource needs for additional support or services. By providing a comprehensive overview of the services, skills, and roles needed to support institutional research data curation, the framework allows libraries, IT and archives to make the case for resources to implement and support research data curation.
