Erin Clary is the Curation Coordinator for the Alliance’s Portage Network. She reviews new dataset deposits for the Federated Research Data Repository (FRDR), and as a member of Portage’s Curation Expert Group, she is engaged in developing resources to support a national curation community of practice. She was previously a curator with Dryad Digital Repository, and has curated data for the Data Curation Network, a cross-institutional network that connects local datasets to expert curators at partner institutions. Erin studied Biology, and holds an MLIS from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is interested in open scholarship, data reusability, and the value of curation, and like many librarians, she loves to solve a puzzle!
