We are in the process of setting up a data repository for our organisation. We have decided to implement CKAN (ckan.org) and currently have a test installation, and have just established a production installation but as yet no ‘real’ data has been deposited.
- Better organisation and documentation of our data (knowing what we have got…)
- Facilitate discovery of data, both internally and externally
- Open access (with appropriate licensing) to publicly funded research, and possibly to some privately funded research if funders agree
- Enhance collaboration with other researchers
- Ability to publish datasets at issue a persistent identifier (we are trialling EZID issuing of DOIs)
We also have a number of so called ‘Nationally Significant Databases and Collections’*, which in most cases have well established data infrastructure of their own. CKAN is aimed at providing a ‘home’ for the multitude of datasets that don’t sit within one of these collections.
If our systems were compatible with DataONE we would still be interested in investigating becoming a member node.

NEXT STEPS: Follow-up to see if they have proceeded as expected with their repository.
