Data Management and Curation in 21st Century Archives


Dan Noonan, is the e-Records/Digital Resources Archivist at "THE" Ohio State University. As such he reports to Tamar Chute, University Archivist, spending his time exercising a  split-personality that on one hand is telling folks to efficiently and effectively manage their electronic records so that they can get rid of them as soon as possible, while on the other is trying figure out how to save some of those in perpetuity to document  the history of the University. He co-authored with Tamar the article, “Data Curation and the University Archives” in The American Archivist last year. Prior to joining OSU nine years ago, he was the supervisor for electronic records management for the State of New Jersey and the digital documents librarian at the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
