ANDS RDSI node Connections


Project Description

The primary objective of this project is to “metadata connect” VicNode and the institutions depositing research data on the VicNode RDSI node. The objective is for all Victorian Universities and client/partner research institutes to autonomously and electronically ingest VicNode generated metadata into their own metadata repositories. This functionality does not presently exist. In turn this will accelerate each institution’s publishing and management of information (metadata) about their collections stored on VicNode, and to allow researchers to discover VicNode collections through RDA and other discovery services. It is also recognised that a cohort of VicNode using institutions will not have their own metadata repository and/or maturity in their data management practices. To accelerate these cases, through this project, VicNode will deploy and operate a basic metadata repository for these institutions and organisations.
