Scientific reproducibility has captured the attention of academics, technologists, government agencies, private funders, and the public. We focus on computational reproducibility -- the ability to obtain the same results from the data and code used in the original study -- for two reasons. One, computational reproducibility is essential for understanding the complete scholarly record. Two, as data managers and archivists, we strongly feel that a test of computational reproducibility should factor into decisions about preserving and sharing these materials. Repositories have a responsibility to ensure the materials comprising the scholarly record can be used as expected in the long term. We advocate for curating for reproducibility (CURE), which involves activities that ensure that statistical and analytic claims about given data can be reproduced with that data. This 3-hour workshop is intended for librarians, data curators, and researchers of diverse professional backgrounds and experience. Participants will be introduced to the topic of curating for reproducibility, hear perspectives from three institutions practicing curating for reproducibility; learn about the CURE workflow and how to curate for reproducibility using YARD, a curation tool, using examples and hands-on activities. Participants will be invited to test YARD and deposit their own data and code.
