Projects

CI Compass

CI Compass is an NSF Cyberinfrastructure Center of Excellence for navigating the major facilities data lifecycle. 


CI Compass provides expertise and active support to cyberinfrastructure practitioners at NSF Major Facilities in order to accelerate the data lifecycle and ensure the integrity and effectiveness of the cyberinfrastructure upon which research and discovery depend.

The vision for CI Compass is to be the leader in supporting and enhancing the national CI ecosystem that includes people, practical knowledge, and processes to facilitate knowledge sharing and discovery across the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Major Facilities (MFs).

This project is supported by the National Science Foundation Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure in the Directorate for Computer Information Science under Grant #2127548. (2021-2026)

Community Data Curation Competency

Indiana University–Indianapolis will enhance the training of library and information science (LIS) professionals by creating a community data curation curriculum program that builds LIS expertise and contributes to community well-being. The project team will evaluate, update, and disseminate the Community Data Curation Pilot Curriculum to train future LIS professionals through strategic partnerships with community organizations, data curation educators, and data curation practitioners. This work will extend the current understanding of data curation competencies to the context of community data; engage strategic stakeholders (educators, practitioners, and community organizations) in the process of curriculum design to reflect their specific needs; and design a data curation pilot curriculum to fill the current gap in data curation education to include community data curation competencies.

This project is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services Grant # RE-252380-OLS-22. (2022-2024)

CI CoE Pilot

CI CoE Pilot is an NSF pilot study cyberinfrastructure center of excellence. CI CoE Pilot provides expertise and active support to cyberinfrastructure practitioners at NSF Major Facilities in order to accelerate the data lifecycle and ensure the integrity and effectiveness of the cyberinfrastructure upon which research and discovery depend.

This project is supported by the National Science Foundation Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure in the Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering and the Division of Emerging Frontiers in the Directorate for Biological Sciences Under Grant #1842042. (2019-2021)
