There exists a critical need for information science research into the curation of scientific data.  The Data Curation Education in Research Centers (DCERC) is a model for educating Library and Information Science masters and doctoral students in data curation through field experiences in research and data centers, bringing students into the real world of scientific data curation, where they will engage in current practices and challenges while developing expertise and conducting research in the area. We implement a graduate research and education program in data curation that brings students directly into the world of scientific data curation. Building on the strengths of the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign Graduate School of Library and Information Science, the University of Tennessee School of Information Sciences, and the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), we address the needs for research expertise and scientific data curation professionals.
