Data Conservancy Project

Together with Carl Lagoze, Information Science, the Cornell University Library is working with Johns Hopkins University on the National Science Foundation funded Data Conservancy, a DataNet project, to build a data research infrastructure for the management of the ever-increasing amounts of digital information created for teaching and research. As part of that project the Library is exploring the use of DataStaR, the Library-developed data staging repository service, as a "small science" front end to the Data Conservancy's long-term data repository. The Library is also building a pilot to integrate the publication of papers and datasets in the arXiv repository.
