Data workshop preso

  1. 1. ANU Data CommonsEnabling E Research
  2. 2. What is it ?● Building a repository for data sets ○ data can be deposited ○ updated ○ published to Research Data Australia● Researcher retains ownership of data ○ can decide what can/should be made public
  3. 3. Context● Built on the back of two ANDS funded projects ○ Seeding the Commons ■ Identify existing datasets, including orphan and legacy datasets and publish descriptions of them in Research Data Australia ■ ANU Data Commons metadata will be sufficient for data to be discovered and accessed. ○ Data Capture ■ Build workflows and mechanisms in Earth Sciences, Optical Astronomy, Phenomics, and Digital Humanities to capture research data as it is generated and publish it
  4. 4. Theres third related project ...Metadata stores● aims to provide a virtual solution that will tie together information about individual researchers identity and their research (grants, publications, other outputs and research data), thus providing a whole of institution view of scholarly research.
  5. 5. Technology● Based on Fedora Commons ○ rich access control ○ web interface to allow researchers to upload, update, publish data ○ also a command line tool that is scriptable for automated upload
  6. 6. Storage● Storage including backup provided by DOI storage infrastructure● Currently no restrictions on size or type of data deposited
  7. 7. Progress● Almost here ○ most functionality present ○ data can be deposited and retrived ○ collection records can be published to RDA ○ Keen to work with researchers to get data into the ANU Data Commons and flowing into RDA during the Beta phase. ○ In November there will be a user interface for self deposit.
  8. 8. Populating the commons● Lisa Bradley seconded from library to conduct audit of datasets ○ will be contacting yourselves and individual researchers about data ○ you may get queries from your researchers ○ Aim is to get at least 50 data sets into Research Data Australia● Happy to work withindividual researchers to upload data during open beta
  9. 9. Questions
