By Carol Perry & Stefan Kramer, co-chairs Last updated: 2014-05-29 by CP

  • The major activity of the Data Management & Curation Interest Group (SIGDMC) in the last year was the conceptualization, organization, submission, and offering of the June 2, 2014, morning workshop Data Management & Curation: Lessons from Government, Academia, and Research. It features seven invited presenters, and session and breakout group moderators from the SIGDMC membership, which also provided input on the breakout group topics.

  • As of May 26, 2014 SIGDMC membership is at just under 70, having been fairly steady over the year in terms of Google Group membership.  

  • The Data Management and Curation Resources page on the IASSIST website has been reviewed and updated. The list now contains 59 resources;  9 new resources were added since May 2013. Minglu Wang, Limor Peer and Wendy Mann are responsible for this resource. 

  • Progress was made in keeping the IASSIST blog active, however, we did not quite meet our goal of one blog per month. 

  • The members who attend the annual IASSIST conference in Toronto have been invited to participate in an in-person meeting on June 4, where the election outcome of the successor of Carol Perry as co-chair will first be announced, and future goals for the group be discussed.**
