DRINET’s prototype research environment provides, as a core function, a digital repository for contributed materials. Already, the DRINET web portal is enabling contributors to upload materials and enabling other researchers to access them. How shall DRINET further develop its repository to ensure that researchers will be able to access these materials in the future, even as current data formats and storage technologies become obsolete? We’ll talk about how an organization can build an active curation function to provide long-term access, and see an example of how one research data repository organization (ICPSR) makes it work.
