Founded in 1945, the Arctic Institute of North America holds a vast collection of Arctic documents, art, and artifacts; as well as a public online database, the Arctic Science and Technology Information System (ASTIS) (www.aina.ucalgary.ca/astis). It has also created the geospatially networked platform ArcticConnect (www.arcticconnect.org). In this presentation, the Arctic Institute of North America’s data manager will discuss policy development and best practices (including working with proprietary and sensitive information specific to northern communities and industries). She will also describe national and international collaboration efforts to make pan-Arctic information and data more accessible.
