Project Description:

The successful creation of the La Trobe University Metadata store has provided the institution with a single focal point for all of its research outputs. The ANDS Metadata stores project has expanded the capability of the repository to manage a whole range of researchers’ needs at La Trobe University. Whilst the University’s ICT and eResearch areas had developed infrastructure to deal with large datasets and big data, eScience and other research data, the ANDS Metadata store has filled the gap in providing a mechanism for all researchers (working on small to large projects within any discipline) to be able to store, manage and disseminate their research collections and data to a wider audience.
