EDI Open Data

to Rachel Woodbrook, Data Curation Librarian at University of Michigan


This project investigates how libraries might better serve the needs of diversity scholars as they think critically about the products of their research (scholarly communication, data, interview/survey instruments, codebooks, etc.). The researchers have conducted initial mixed-methods research in this area and are using the resulting data to produce an online toolkit to share best practices for sharing data, and to share their own research objects with other diversity scholars. This grant would support further research and analysis assessing the pilot toolkit’s strengths and weaknesses, revision and enhancement of the toolkit, and presentation of the research and resource.
