Archiving is hard. But it’s even harder if you don’t know what data you having requiring archiving. This project is to plan and carry out an audit of research data belonging to the School of Informatics.
Just how important data curation is becoming is illustrated by the fact that I currently have no less than three active projects in this area, this one, project 194 – A New Archiving Policy for Informatics and project 307 – Produce a MHR Data Asset Register – Requirements and Design Phase. To try and make sense of how we should approach these projects, I wrote this short note suggesting that this project and project 194 be stalled while effort was focused on project 307. It looks likely that this suggestion will be approved so please look on the project 307 page for further updates.
