Dataverse North Working Group

The Dataverse North Working Group is contributing to a community of practice for libraries using or interested in using the Dataverse repository platform for research data in Canada. The Working Group is also investigating gaps and opportunities that could be addressed by nationally coordinated strategies and services for Dataverse, including training, infrastructure development, support for researchers and libraries, and hosting services provided by regional Dataverse providers (view Terms of Reference).

Goals:

To develop a community of practice that brings together Dataverse providers and libraries to coordinate and discuss local and national training, support services, outreach strategies, promotions, and infrastructure development and needs.

Members of the Dataverse North Working Group will draw upon expertise already within the Portage Network, providing advice in areas such as data preservation, data discovery, curation, metadata, and training.
