Launched: July 18, 2014


The UC Data Curation (DC) Common Knowledge Group (CKG) is a group of experts and pioneers in the area of curation of scholarly, educational, and research data including both physical and born digital, open and restricted. The DC CKG supports the work of researchers and the Libraries throughout data lifecycle, from creation to access and re-use. The DC CKG communicates with and provides support to the UCL Advisory Structure, but is not a decision-making body. To foster innovation in digital services related to supporting research and scholarship using data, the DC CKG openly communicates, meets regularly, and encourages broad participation from all levels of staff who are responsible for or involved in this area. 

See more detail in the UC Data Curation CKG Charter.
