    • A place for my stuff • What is a repository?! • A repository provides long-term storage and preservation of digital content! • It also provides long-term access in the form of persistent URLs
    • The repository landscape • Many repository software packages are designed to support institutional repositories! • Examples include: DSpace, EPrints, and Digital Commons! • These solutions tend to be easy to setup and manage but offer limited customization
    • What is Fedora? • Flexible Extensible Durable Object Repository Architecture! • Fedora is OPEN SOURCE digital repository software! • It is developed, adopted, and supported internationally! • We’re building Fedora 4! • The entire codebase has been re-written to support the needs for robust and full-featured repository services for the next decade
    • Fedora integrates with other applications • Fedora typically sits between a back-end file system and a front-end user interface! • A wide variety of back-end file systems are supported! • Popular front-end user interfaces include Hydra and Islandora
    • How big is the community? • There are over 320 Fedora installations (that we know of!)! • Our community is growing:! • 41 Fedora sponsors! • 19 active developers! • 17 leadership group members! • 10 steering group members

    • Store and manage large files • Research data comes in all shapes and sizes! • Huge datasets in spreadsheets! • High resolution images! • High-quality audio/video recordings! • Fortunately, Fedora supports files of virtually any size
    • Manage external files • Your research data may be stored in an external file system! • Fedora can project over these files and treat them as if they were in the repository! • Fedora’s management and preservation features will be available to these files
    • Preserve your data • Fedora provides a variety of preservation features! • Automated fixity checking (checksums)! • Backup and restore of the entire repository! • You can also create new versions every time you make a change:! • Across the repository! • Only for certain actions
    • Research data use cases
    • Institutional repositories • Repository managers need to upload publications and associated research datasets! • Publications and research data files can uploaded with associated metadata! • Each file can be associated with any number of other files in the repository
    • Managing publications
    • Associating research data
    • Smithsonian Institute • SIdora is designed to support the research process from beginning to end! • Researchers upload files to the repository and use it directly in their analysis! • The entire research process is documented and preserved alongside the finished publication
    • Managing concepts
    • Adding resources
    • Editing metadata
    • Uploading datasets
