Data Archive

Projects

The Odum Institute Data Archive is involved in several research projects. For more information, contact Jonathan Crabtree at odumarchive@unc.edu.

DataNet

The DataNet Federation Consortium is funded by the National Science Foundation. The consortium spanning seven universities will build and deploy a prototype for national data management infrastructure.

WILIS 3

The Workforce Issues in Library and Information Science 3 (WILIS 3) project built on the previous WILIS studies by focusing on a collaborative approach to data sharing. The major goals of the project were to: 1) create publicly accessible de-identified datasets from the WILIS 1 and 2 studies; 2) develop an interactive program-specific data system to enable LIS programs to explore their own data and benchmark with other programs; and 3) produce a data archiving toolkit that can be used by other researchers. This study was funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services.

SafeArchive

The goal of the SafeArchive project was to develop a prototype storage platform for policy-driven distributed replication of digital holdings. The SafeArchive prototype is a self-contained system that can be installed, used, and maintained by institutional staff without technical expertise. This project was funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services.

Virtual Archiving Demonstration Project

The Virtual Archiving for Public Opinion Polls: A Demonstration Project aimed to streamline the data deposit process for public opinion research centers. The grant was funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services.
