Data: Cooperation and Collaboration Efforts

One particular slide from Furlough’s talk is especially noteworthy. 

Research Libraries and “Big Data”

. 

DataCite develop mechanisms to assign persistent, unique identifiers to datasets so that they can be cited 

. 

Digital Preservation Network >75 universities contributed to fund an investigation of a national preservation network

 Chronopolis at SanDiego, HathiTrust, the Data Conservancy all have slightly different approaches to data storage and transfer

On
this
screen
you
see
several
examples
of
the
kind
of
collaboration
I’m
talking
about.
DataOne,
Data
Concervancy
and
Data
to
Insight
Center
have
all
been
funded
by
NSF
through
DataNet.
MetaArchive,
a
dark
preservation
archive
making
use
of
peer-­‐to-­‐
peer
technology,
and
GeoMAPP,
focsed
on
the
preservation
of
local/state
government
spatial
data
were
both
funded
by
Library
of
Congress’s
NDIIPP
program.
There
are
new
ones
emerging
all
the
time.
The
Library
of
Congress’s
NDIIPP
program
has
given
rise
to
the
National
Digital
Stewardship
Alliance,
which
includes
members
from
academia,
industry,
and
government,
convened
to
work
on
Content
|
Standards
and
Practices
|
Infrastructure
|
Innovation
|
Outreach.
DataCite
is
an
organization
founded
by
several
European
national
libraries
and
including
some
North
American
libraries
to
work
with
the
publishing
industry
to
develop
the
mechanisms
to
assign
persistent,
unique
identifiers
to
datasets
so
that
they
can
be
cited.
The
Digital
Preservation
Network
is
the
newest
and
perhaps
the
most
ambitious.
Over
75
universities
have
contributed
at
least
$20k
to
fund
an
investigation
of
a
NATIONAL
preservation
network.
Two
strategies
of
DPN
worth
noting
are:
Preservation
in
enhanced
not
just
through
replication/storage,
but
by
replicating/storing
in
a
diversity
of
repository
infrastructures.
Chronopolis
at
San
Diego,
Hathi
Trust,
the
Data
Conservancy
all
have
slightly
different
approaches
to
data
storage
and
transfer.
