Why Share: Politics and Possibilities for Successful Research Data Archives

Michael Lesk(1), Janice Bially-Mattern(2)

Preservation and archiving of research data presupposes researchers who deposit in public repositories. However, neither funder-mandated requirements nor institutional support for data curation have persuaded many researchers to do so. What can librarians do? We discuss strategies for cultivating academic cultures of data sharing that support politically sustainable data archives.

Texas Digital Library and Digital Preservation Networks
Ryan Steans, Courtney Mumma, Kristi Park
Texas Digital Library, United States of America
The Texas Digital Library addresses the challenge of building a preservation suite of services in the heterogeneous landscape of institutional preservation practices and policies across a consortium. We will discuss appropriateness of digital preservation storage methodologies for diverse content, some of which require non-commercial, memory institution aligned distribution.
Local to Global: community digital preservation collaborations
Stephen Patton(1), William Knauth(2), Sam Meister(3)
1: Indiana State University, United States of America; 2: Indiana Digital Preservation (InDiPres); 3: MetaArchive - Educopia Institute
InDiPres is an endeavor amongst cultural heritage organizations to collaboratively advocate, educate, establish digital preservation practices, and provide enterprise class preservation platforms. Sustainable high quality preservation strategies should be accessible to all organizations regardless of size and funding but unfortunately a high barrier of entry creates an exclusive clique.
