The PURR Odyssey – How it Started. • 2003 - National - “Atkins Report” Revolutionizing Science and Engineering through Cyberinfrastructure – NSF • 2004 - 2006 – At Purdue • nanoHUB NSF Funded, collaborative software, HUBzero • Conversations between Libraries and Researchers • Restructuring of Libraries – Associate Dean for Research • 2007 - At Purdue • Creation of Distributed Data Curation Center (D2C2) • NSF DataNet Proposal – using HUBzero platform • Creation of Libraries’ Interdisciplinary Research Specialist and Data Research Scientist • IMLS Grant for Data Curation Profiles
Building Purdue University Research Repository - PURR - 2010 – 2014 (#1) • May 2010 – NSF Announcement of Data Management Mandate • Summer 2010 – Provost appoints taskforce of faculty researchers – co-chaired by CIO and Dean of Libraries. • Fall 2010 - Commitment to develop repository jointly by ITaP, OVPR, and Libraries using HUBzero platform. • 2011 - Workshops offered by OVPR and Libraries -introduced Data Curationchecklist & • Trusted Digital Repository • criteria used as framework.
Building Purdue University Research Repository - PURR - 2010 – 2014 (#2) • Spring 2012 – Vice-President for Research committed $1,200,000 to develop data repository. Project Director from Libraries asked to lead Data Repository development team –– Purdue University Research Repository – PURR selected as name. • Summer 2012 – Data Repository Specialist and programmers hired. Libraries staff including archivists, data and subject specialists dedicated to development. Work with staff from HUBzero and OVPR.
2014 - Next Steps • Three universities to collaborate with Purdue on scaling data management: University of Chicago, University of Illinois, and University of Michigan. • International collaboration between Purdue Libraries and Tsinghua University and National Science Library (China).
How to start a data management process and implement a data repository. • Appreciate and Understand Application of library and archival science principles and theory to data management. • Don’t hesitate to Collaborate with faculty (researchers), information technology, research office, and sponsored programs to develop a process and repository to manage and preserve data. • Accept that that there is Little or No Precedent to establish sustainability for library e-science/data management.
