MIT Libraries Dataverse by Katherine McNeill

  1. 1. MIT Libraries Dataverse https://dataverse.harvard.edu/dataverse/mit Katherine McNeill Research Data Librarian Dataverse Community Meeting 2015
  2. 2. Background • History of partnership in the Harvard-MIT Data Center since the mid-1990s • Use of the Virtual Data Center (predecessor of Dataverse) • Liaison: MIT Social Science Data Librarian
  3. 3. Basics of our Dataverse • Managed by the MIT Libraries (in Harvard Dataverse) • Platform to house and disseminate datasets purchased by the Libraries for MIT students/faculty/staff to use in their research • Not for disseminating data produced at MIT (other Dataverses and repositories do that…) • Deposit data that meets criteria • Harvard Libraries have a similar collection: the Numeric Data Services Dataverse
  4. 4. Authentication mechanisms • Why restrict access? • When Libraries purchase data for their collections, licenses limit dissemination to university affiliates • Historically: MIT IP range (including proxy server) • Plan for 4.0: Shibboleth • Shibboleth support still in development • IP groups may also be available again in the future
  5. 5. Future developments • Integration with Libraries digital content management system • Expanding beyond the social sciences to other subjects • Involvement of other librarians • Documenting workflow • Considering centralizing some management • Thank you!
