  8. 8. • Social Sciences (38.1%) • Engineering (20.3%) • Biology (18.7%) • Science/Math (10.3%) • Special/Undeclared (6.3%) • Humanities (3.3%) • Arts (3.0%) 30,000 Students $1 Billion in annual research
  9. 9. UC San Diego Library • 590,000+ e-books • 43,000 electronic periodicals and journals • 262,000+ digital media resources • 50+ unique digital collections
  10. 10. How did we get here? Photo courtesy Declan Fleming, All Rights Reserved
  11. 11. 2008 Campus-wide survey Indicated desire for data services  Management of active data  Long-term preservation of data  Data Description 2009 “Blueprint for the Digital University” 2012 Data Management Plan requirements Changed thinking of many on campus Push for integrated campus services
  12. 12. Our researchers said they need: Places to put things Ways to point to things Help organizing things Photo courtesy Jenny Reiswig, All Rights Reserved
  13. 13. Integrated campus services Research Cyberinfrastructure Program (RCI) http://rci.ucsd.edu Research Data Curation Program in Library http://libraries.ucsd.edu/services/data-curation
  14. 14. RCI is “By campus, for campus” Started in 2011, RCI are priorities driven by researcher requirements RCI is managed by an Oversight Committee, representing campus units, which sets strategic directions and oversees implementation Implementation partners from across campus o Administrative Computing & Telecommunications o Calit2 o San Diego Supercomputer Center o UCSD Library
  15. 15. RCI Services Centralized Storage High Speed Networking Computing Data Center Colocation Data Curation http://rci.ucsd.edu
  16. 16. Data Curation Pilots Two year pilot process with selected researchers (started September 2011) Targeted domains representing campus Explicitly required researcher participation
  17. 17. The curation pilot goals Investigate what it means to make a variety of research data discoverable and reusable Investigate current UC San Diego tools for this work Learn how researchers, information technologists, and librarians work together with data Recommend production services Develop budget and cost models
  18. 18. The curation pilot researchers The Brain Observatory NSF OpenTopography Facility Levantine Archaeology Laboratory Scripps Institution of Oceanography Geological Collections The Laboratory for Computational Astrophysics
  19. 19. What’s the deal with research data? Actual research data!
  20. 20. What’s the deal with research data? What makes it different from other data types? What challenges does it present to a repository? What are the data owners’ expectations? What are the institutional responsibilities?
  21. 21. What makes it different from other data types? Complexity Size of data Number of files Variety of file types New presentation methods Mixed mode presentation methods Photo courtesy Jenny Reiswig, All Rights Reserved
  22. 22. What challenges does it present to a repository? How do we represent complex data models? How do we meet the needs of a diverse user community (including data owners)? How do we interact with diverse systems? How does it play with library data?
  23. 23. What are the data owners’ expectations? Long term preservation of data Long term availability of data Reference-ability of data Lots of cool whiz bang features Actual research data!
  24. 24. What are the institutional responsibilities? Preserve the intellectual capital of the university Take advantage of institutional commitments Provide a base level of data services for campus Create new research opportunities by bringing diverse data together
  25. 25. How did we begin to approach this work? Actual research data!
  26. 26. How did we begin to approach this work? By providing an integrated stack of services: A tool for search and discovery A digital preservation service Identifier service Training classes Not research data!
  27. 27. The integrated stack DAMS for search and discovery Chronopolis for digital preservation EZID service for object identifiers Training classes on Data Management Plan Tool Nope!
  28. 28. DAMS for search and discovery Begun 10 years ago RDF based metadata - allows for multiple standards support (MADS, Premis, MIX, etc.) local attributes easily added linked data Local and cloud based storage Needed changes made to accommodate complex objects and collections
  29. 29. UCSD Library DAMS As other collections are added, they will be listed here. Cross-collection discoverability is key. Complex research collections will be “mixed in” with regular digital collections.
  30. 30. 32 Complex components and imagery Full metadata records
  31. 31. Chronopolis for digital preservation • TRAC-certified preservation system • Data replicated in three locations across the country • Active preservation
  32. 32. EZID service for DOI services As part of an arrangement with the California Digital Library, we provide free DOIs to campus researchers.
  33. 33. Training classes on DMP Tool
  34. 34. That’s our stack … … today
  35. 35. We faced challenges in these processes Expression of complex objects in metadata Presentation of complex objects in DAMS Organization of divergent datasets into a coherent unit Best ways to provide data management services
  36. 36. Our challenges for tomorrow Move from boutique, pilot services to a scalable series of processes. Work with additional researchers in same domains. Work with new domains. Broaden lifecycle management mindset on campus.
  37. 37. Stay tuned … Next Webinar (October 15) Deep dive into our two core developments Arwen Hutt - Metadata Librarian Matt Critchlow - Manager of Development and Web Services
  38. 38. Stay tuned … Final Webinar (October 31) The researcher perspective from two of our pilot participants Dick Norris – Professor, Scripps Institution of Oceanography Rick Wagner – Data Scientist at San Diego Supercomputer Center
