UC Open Research Data Collection – developing staff, showcasing research

Project Description

The University of Canberra Library is using the ANDS funded Open Data Collection (ODC) project to develop processes around gathering, describing, storing and sharing primary research data generated at the University.

For this project, the Library is working with researchers from the Faculty of Health to make datasets discoverable and available open access on the Research Data Australia site via the University’s own Research Repository.

The project is developing the capacity of Library staff to deliver services on an ongoing basis that will in turn provide greater exposure for research carried out at the University and allow other researchers and to easily discover, identify, retrieve and re-use important data collections.
