The article discusses the roles of liaison librarians in science and engineering data curation. It notes the result of a study which shows the roles of liaisons in engineering and science data curation including the role to help researchers set the stage for depositing their data by consulting with them while in the process of data creation. It mentions that curatorial needs in engineering and science vary widely across each discipline.
