Introduction to the Stanford Digital Repository
The Stanford Digital Repository (SDR) is Stanford University Libraries' digital preservation
system. The repository provides “back-office” preservation services – data replication,
auditing, media migration, and retrieval -- in a secure, sustainable, scalable stewardship
environment. The SDR also works closely with the Libraries' Data Management Services
team to extend preservation, management, access and discovery services to Stanford
researchers who want to promote and protect the products of their work. These services
enable depositors to comply with funding agency requirements for research data management,
and support researchers who author journal articles and need a repository to host
the supplemental data underlying the published research results.
Please join Tom Cramer, the libraries' Chief Technology Strategist; Amy Hodge, Science Data Librarian; and Mimi Calter, AUL & Chief of Staff, on November 8th to learn more about the SDR, your current options for depositing in the system, tools for access, and future plans for the SDR and for data storage at Stanford.
