Data Curation SPEC Kit 354 released by ARL; related Webcast June 14

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) has released SPEC Kit 354, its latest report on research library data curation practices, that: 

explores the infrastructure that ARL member institutions are using for data curation, which data curation services are offered, who may use them, which disciplines demand services most, library staffing levels, policies and workflows, and the challenges of supporting these activities.

It includes examples of data repository web pages, descriptions of services, infrastructure, workflows, metadata schemas, and policies, and job descriptions.

SPEC Kit 354 (May 2017) may be useful for anyone interested in what other major research institutions are doing in regards to research data management and curation.
