Title:Archiving the Legacy of the Research Data Alliance
Author(s):Dunham, Elise
Subject(s):Research Data Alliance
archival science
records management
Abstract:The multitude of working, interest, and coordinating groups in the Research Data Alliance (RDA) generate many digital objects that do not currently benefit from a coherent management strategy. As a result, efforts to coordinate work within and across groups are not optimal and the organization's ability to communicate RDA's full body of work to external stakeholders (e.g., potential adopters, funders), is not fully realized. As a 2016 RDA/US Data Share fellow, I am working to develop an organization-wide curation and archiving strategy that will be a crucial first step toward addressing the information management challenges faced by RDA. This poster demonstrates the "lay of the land" of RDA digital objects and information, thus encapsulating the exploratory early steps of the project. It also provides a summary of lessons learned from an environmental scan of similar organizations and an overview of the theoretical frameworks that will guide this project.
