PASIG Webinar - Stewarding Research Data with Fedora and Islandora

4 years 10 months

Next week on Tuesday, July 11th from 11:30am-12:30pm (EDT), Islandora's Mark Leggott will present a webinar based on his recent workshop for the Preservation and Archiving Special Interest Group (PASIG) in Washington, DC. ASIS&T members can attend for free and non-members can register for only $20.00. Details and registration available here.

About the webinar:

The interest in stewarding research data is undergoing an exponential increase, encouraged by funder mandates as well as the recognition by researchers that data sharing leads to greater discovery and innovation. The Islandora community is actively working on solutions for managing the diversity of data in virtually any domain. In one example at the University of PEI, Islandora tools are being built to sync data from systems like DropBox and Google Drive to Fedora, providing immediate preservation services for any arbitrary collection of data. This Physical Data Model is intended to provide a quick and seamless integration with Islandora where the researchers can subsequently add enrichment and optionally choose to share the data with others. In another example the Smithsonian is applying a set of Intellectual Data Models to steward research output from a variety of projects. In this case data is ingested into Islandora against a domain-specific data model that applies specific metadata forms, data transformations and data viewers to make the data more accessible immediately on ingest. The webinar will highlight these and other approaches to research data management and preservation.
