What counts as data within a theological context? How are theological data different from other forms of data? And what is data curation, and why should theological librarians care?

This workshop will explore the relevance of this quickly developing field within scholarly communications for theological librarians, and will also offer examples of practical and easy to implement solutions.

The presenters will introduce the basics of data curation, including the data curation lifecycle, data management plans, and digital preservation practices. Additionally, they will address questions about the ethics of data collection, the role of institutional review boards (IRBs), data licensing, and data privacy. Finally, they will demonstrate practical data visualization techniques to convert information theological libraries already collect into shareable datasets that can be used for making data-driven decisions about collections and access.
