The Purdue University Libraries, University of Minnesota, University of Oregon, and XXXX are exploring and developing instructional programs to teach budding e-scientists how to discover, manage, and curate their data, supported by a two-year Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) grant.\\
Librarians will interview and observe research teams to determine needs for data and collaborate with research faculty to devise and implement instruction to address gaps in student abilities and work habits. \\
Instructional materials and assessment tools will be posted to this web site as they become available. available. \\
