A Pilot Data Repository at Middlebury College V2

Wendy Shook, Middlebury College

Description

Middlebury College is a small undergraduate college which nevertheless produces significant volumes of research data created by both faculty and students. Many funding agencies now require robust data management planning, including data archiving, but not all the data locally produced with such funding fits naturally into national, discipline specific repositories. Thus, we are attempting to create a local repository to curate this data. We began a pilot with the repository software that was already available on campus, but it has become clear that a more flexible platform is needed, so a second phase of the pilot has begun.
