DAS New York: Sayeed Choudhury

Johns Hopkins Digital Preservation Repositories for Research and Science

Johns Hopkins Digital Preservation Repositories for Research and Science. The Sheridan Libraries at Johns Hopkins University have been storing and archiving research data for over a decade and have recently developed a data archive through initial funding from the National Science Foundation. Through work with the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and the development of the Data Conservancy, the Sheridan Libraries have developed a conceptual model for data management, a definition of preservation inspired by the Open Archival Information System (OAIS) reference model and a set of lessons learned. The presentation describes the history of this data curation work and its culmination through the development of the JHU data archive. Additionally, the talk will feature challenges or opportunities related to data management that span different types of data from a diverse array of communities or organizations. Sayeed Choudhury is Associate Dean for Research Data Management, Johns Hopkins University and Hodson Director, Digital Research and Curation Center, Johns Hopkins University. Presented May 8, 2015 at AMIA's DAS: New York.
