Jacob R Carlson
Director of Deep Blue Repository and Research Data Services
I am the Director of Deep Blue Repository and Research Data Services in Michigan Publishing.
I am responsible for leading the Deep Blue Repository and Research Data Services (DBRRDS) department in providing services to support world-wide discovery, public access, and long term preservation for the research and scholarship of the University of Michigan. This includes helping researchers share their data in ways that comply with grant or publisher requirements and benefit researchers professionally. Our work includes the development and operation of the library's institutional repositories, Deep Blue and Deep Blue Data.
I actively collaborate with librarians, faculty and students in support of managing, sharing and preserving research data. I was the primary architect of the Data Curation Profile Toolkit and the PI of the Data Information Literacy Project both of which were funded by the IMLS. I serve as U-M's representative to the Data Curation Network and helped to develop the Data Curation Workshops offered by the DCN. I have served as a named Co-PI on grant funded projects with researchers in Climatology and Transportation.
