About Us

The University of Arizona School of Information, the Department of Astronomy and Steward Observatory, the University Libraries, the American Astronomical Society and CyVerse are working to create a data hub for previously uncurated astronomical data.

Astronomy data represent a curation challenge for information managers, as well as for research and computational astronomers. Extracting knowledge from these heterogeneous and complex datasets is particularly complicated and requires both interdisciplinary and domain expertise to accomplish true curation, with an overall goal of facilitating reproducible science through discoverability and persistence.

Our team is building tools and infrastructure to expose research data at various stages of the research process, overall facilitating data sharing and re-use.
