Fall Bulletin: Jared Lyle named Director of Curation Services

The top story in the Fall 2012 ICPSR Bulletin (PDF, 629KB) is the appointment of Jared Lyle to the position of Director of Curation Services.

Lyle has been with ICPSR since 2004, most recently as a research associate managing data acquisitions. As Director of Curation Services, Lyle will develop and maintain a comprehensive approach to data management and digital preservation policy.

Other items of note from this edition of the Bulletin:

  • Descriptions of new projects including the Metadata Portal for the ANES and GSS datasets and an initiative funded by the Sloan Foundation on standardizing data citation
  • Reminders of upcoming deadlines for grants, internships and a research paper competitions
  • Questions and answers with data depositor Mark Regnerus of the University of Texas (our hope is to feature a different data depositor in each Bulletin -- to suggest someone, email dmeisler@umich.edu).



Thanks for reading, and Happy Thanksgiving!
