Making a harvester harvestable: Federating an OAI endpoint directly from Postgres
Kelly Stathis and Alex Garnett

Does your repository want to implement an OAI-PMH server, but not know where to start? This presentation will cover how a discovery service adapted existing code to create a custom OAI-PMH server, allowing the metadata to be discoverable by OpenAIRE.

Geodisy: A new way to discover Canadian research data
Mark Goodwin, Paul Dante, Kelly Stathis, and Eugene Barsky

With the increasing demand for geographic components in research, there is an opportunity for research data repositories to provide alternatives to text-based discovery. Enter Geodisy, an open-source spatial discovery platform for Canadian open research data. Initially funded by CANARIE and now in partnership with Portage, Geodisy provides a map-based search that is available alongside Canada’s Federated Research Data Repository (FRDR). Data is discoverable based on its location, and users have the ability to preview datasets as overlays on a digital map and access comprehensive metadata.

These presentations are part of Access 2020.
