Norlin Library, CU Boulder.

CU recently announced the newest addition to Norlin Library: The Center For Research Data and Digital Scholarship (CRDDS), set to open this Thursday, June 8. As digital information and analytics become more and more prevalent within academic research practices, CU Boulder recognized the growing need for this addition. The center is designed to aid CU Boulder students as well as faculty to manage and secure their digital data. 

“The Center will make it easier to re-use, re-purpose and generally share data across disciplines,” stated Andrew Johnson, the director of research data management for CRDDS, for CU Boulder Today.

As well as the innovations in infrastructure offered by the new center, CRDDS also intends to provide one-on-one consultations and training sessions for both faculty and students. As CU’s campus grows and the technological world evolves, it becomes increasingly important to stay up-to-date with student resources.

For those who are interested, CRDDS will be hosting a kick-off event at 3:00 p.m. Thursday, June 8, and will feature a wide range of prominent speakers from across CU Boulder campus.
