June 2, 2010 -- Sayeed Choudhury (external link), the associate dean for Library Digital Programs at the Sheridan Libraries of Johns Hopkins University, will provide an overview of the Data Conservancy (external link) at the Library of Congress on June 7, 2010 at 12:00 p.m. in the National Digital Library Learning Center, Madison Building Atrium, in Washington, DC.

The Data Conservancy is one of two initial awards through the National Science Foundation's DataNet Program. The Data Conservancy embraces a shared vision: data curation is not an end, but rather a means to collect, organize, validate and preserve data to address grand research challenges.
