Within the University of Sydney implementation of Seeding the Commons, the project aims to
- support the Vice Chancellor’s “University Research Data Storage, Management and Access” project in the development of policy, procedures, guidelines and support for research data management, preservation and appropriate open access.
- identify research data collections at the University of Sydney, and describe these in RIF-CS format. These collections will then be made discoverable through RDA.
- assist specific research groups to manage their data and make it discoverable through RDA
- build expertise in support of data planning and management.
On September 30, the Library will host an awareness-raising session on eResearch. Oriented toward library staff, it will introduce issues at institutional, state and national levels. Speakers from other universities will give an overview of library connections with eResearch. There will also be speakers from ICT eResearch, the Intersect eResearch Institute and Sydney eScholarship. View program and presentations
This ANDS funded project aims to provide an institution-wide approach to metadata about research data collections. The project will design and implement an institution-wide metadata store through ICT. This will aggregate information from suitable University enterprise systems, have applicability across many or all of the other ANDS funded Data Capture projects listed above, and complement the Sydney Seeding the Commons project.
