Winchester, MA It's not just data anymore, it's research data because advancing knowledge in all fields of research now requires curation, collection, management, access and long-term preservation of digital data sets. Research libraries are planning and experimenting with repository research data policies, workflows and economic models to ensure that data will persist to serve researchers and institutions far into the future. Institutional repositories are facing issues of how to handle, store, and make available larger and larger research datasets. Plan on attending "Research Data in Repositories" at Open Repositories 2013 to explore this emerging strategic issue.
Join panelists Mark Leggott, Sarah Shreeves, Andrew Bell, Dean Krafft, Jill Sexton and moderator Carol Minton Morris who will discuss how the three major open source repository platforms are helping address current challenges, uncover opportunities, and develop potential solutions for the preservation and use of digital research data in repositories at their institutions. "Research Data in Repositories" will take place at OR2013 from 9:00-10:30am on Wednesday July 10 in MacDonald. There will be ample time for questions and conversation with the audience.
