Data Specialist Competencies
This survey is part of an effort to capture community feedback on potential competencies for data advisors (e.g. data curators - individuals that provide guidance to researchers in the selection, management, sharing, and preservation of their research data), and data service providers (e.g. data librarians - individuals that provide training, infrastructure support, preservation services, and other services to researchers related to their data management needs). The information provided by your response will be integrated into a "Data Advisor" and "Data Services Provider" Career Compass for the American Geosciences Institute, and as input into the process of developing learning assessment capabilities for a future version of ESIP's Data Management Training Clearinghouse. Thank you for taking a few minutes to answer the following questions about the importance of different competencies for these two activities related to research data management.
