The Data Curation Network (DCN) enables organizations to support researchers in making data FAIR through a shared staffing model for curation expertise across institutions. Since launching in May 2018 through the generous support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Data Curation Network has grown to include 10 organizations nationwide. The outcomes of this collaborative model include expertly-curated data regardless of repository destination, standardized data curation practices (CURATED steps), and a unique platform for advocacy and research on data sharing issues. Our work has implications in the broader data curation community through the development of a number of educational initiatives, with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), including hands-on workshops and our community-published "data curation primers." Over the past year, the DCN has enlisted the consulting services of LYRASIS and an external advisory panel to assist us in developing a sustainability plan. This presentation will provide an update on these DCN activities and discuss how other libraries and organizations can become involved.
