New CLIR Report: The Problem of Data

The Council on Library and Information Resources has released a new report on data titled "The Problem of Data".

From the abstract:
Jahnke and Asher explore workflows and methodologies at a variety of academic data curation sites, and Keralis delves into the academic milieu of library and information schools that offer instruction in data curation. Their conclusions point to the urgent need for a reliable and increasingly sophisticated professional cohort to support data-intensive research in our colleges, universities, and research centers.
