Connecting Data, Institutions and People: FAIR Digital Objects, RDA outputs and the design of the DiSSCo Research Infrastructure

Date: 
18 Mar 2021 - 18:00 to 19:00 UTC
Organiser: 

RDA-US - 2021 Webinar Series Highlighting RDA Outputs

Presenters: 

Sharif Islam, Ph.D., Data Architect, DiSSCo//Naturalis Biodiversity Center, The Netherlands

Dr. Islam is a Data Architect for DiSSCo (Distributed System for Scientific Collections) -- a new pan-European research infrastructure project to work with European museums and natural science collections to create a data-driven research infrastructure to mobilise, unify and deliver bio - and geo-diversity information. His background is in designing, implementing, and managing various large-scale and distributed mission-critical systems, services, and applications.

This webinar will address how the Distributed System of Scientific Collections (DiSSCo) --- a new European Research Infrastructure currently in the preparation phase -- is working towards transforming a fragmented landscape of the natural science collections into an integrated data infrastructure. The talk will provide an overview of the architectural design of DiSSCo, focusing on the adoption of FAIR Digital Object and the incorporation of multiple RDA Group outputs.  It will highlight the benefits of this approach to the goal of connecting data, institutions, and people. This endeavour not only includes the data element, but institutions of varying sizes and capacities, and the people curating, maintaining, and using the collections and the data.

Publishing GLAM data as FAIR data

Date: 
29 Oct 2020 - 16:00 UTC

Cultural heritage data collections from the Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums (GLAM) sector are crucial resources that can help advance research for scholars in the humanities. However, data requires management and data management requires guidelines for implementation. The Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) principles have been widely adopted as best practice in data management and publication.
