The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries data curation committee has worked to educate Library staff about data curation and to highlight strategic opportunities for library engagement on data curation matters. The UNL Libraries have become central to the support of data archiving on campus by designing the interface for the UNL Data Repository. Additionally, the committee established a new data policy for campus that not only builds awareness about the importance of archiving data but promotes open access.
