Case Statement: 
WGs Maintaining deliverables (maintenance group)
 

Several communities have expressed interest in leveraging aggregations of objects with particular focus on building such aggregations through PIDs and possibly providing identifiers for aggregation objects. There is however no unified cross-community approach to building and managing such collections and no common model for understanding them. The PID Information Types WG has defined a core model and the central interface for accessing object state information and provided a small number of example types, which were consequently registered in the Type Registry WG prototype. With these tools available to describe essential object information, collections can be described so to be able to deal with more than a single object at once.

Building collections within diverse domains and then sharing or expanding them across disciplines should enable common tools for end-users and e-infrastructure providers. Individual disciplinary communities can directly benefit if such tools are made widely available, and cross-community data sharing can benefit from increased unification between collection models and implementations. PID providers may benefit from marketing additional services on collections.


The group has assembled a full recommendation, which is endorsed by RDA. The recommendation is available here:

New Adoption of Collection API

Dear all,
this is an announcement of a new adoption of the Research Data Collections WG outputs. Our aim with this implementation is to provide a production-ready, general purpose Collection Service.
Our Collection Service covers all basic functionalities described in the final recommendations of the Data Collections WG, e.g.
Well-defined operations for collections and its members (create, read, update, delete).
Support for sub-collections.

Research Data Collections in one slide

Dear all,
looking through past presentations, I did not find a good option that
displays very concisely in one slide what our group has achieved and
what the specification is all about. Based on our P10 outputs
presentation I've drafted a single slide, see attached. Comments welcome
- I want to put this on our entry page or link to it from our
recommendation page if possible.
Best, Tobias
