Strategy #2

Strengthen networked repository and storage infrastructure for data derived from research conducted by member institutions. Improve interoperability and opportunity between institutions, disciplinary organizations, and other research data hosts for working collaboratively with data and for access, archiving, and long-term preservation.

  1. [Infrastructure Group A] Propose a plan for research file storage for active projects that could be shared by member institutions. Such storage might be centrally hosted, distributed across institutions, or some combination thereof.
  2. [Infrastructure Group B] Propose a shared central data repository and/or system of linked institutional repositories responsible for hosting and sharing archived research data from completed research projects.
  3. [Infrastructure Group C] Propose desired interoperability services between a) active research file storage for project and post-research archival research repositories, and b) archival repository and a preservation system based on the OAIS (Open archives initiative system) framework (e.g., DPN, the Digital Preservation Network or Ex Libris Rosetta)
  4. [Infrastructure Group D ] Propose discovery and access services to make data more visible with appropriate links to the data or to a research contact for further information.
