To help researchers meet their grant commitments as well promote open access and open science, The Laurir Library provides data archiving services to faculty, grad students, and other HQP.  Our Borealis Data Repository  will provide a home for your non-sensitive research data and help you meet your Tri-Agency data deposit requirements. Research data submitted to Borealis is curated by our specialists, provided a DOI, and made findable on both public and scholarly search engines. We steward a copy of your data so you don’t have to.

This webinar explains how researchers can submit their research data for curation into Borealis. We cover our:

  • Metadata requirements
  • Open access and non-sensitive data expectations
  • Recommended file formats, naming conventions, and organization
  • Data description requirements, including readme files and methodological summaries

By the end of the session, you will know how to submit data for curation, what information we require to complete the process, and our timelines and next steps.
