Depositing large-scale data with the UK Data Service

6 Dec 2021 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

All data offers received by the UK Data Service are appraised in accordance to our Collections Development Selection and Appraisal Criteria, which are informed by our Collections Development Policy. Our decision will be either to accept the data in our curated repository, accept the data in our self-deposit repository ReShare, or advise you to use an institutional repository or alternative place of deposit.

The depositing of large-scale data is fully onlineĀ  from initially offering your collection for deposit to completing the deposit form with accurate catalogue metadata information, signing the licence agreement and sending over the materials. Anyone wishing to deposit a collection with us must have an active account.

This webinar is designed for those depositing large-scale data in our curated repository. The webinar will cover the following topics with live demonstrations:

  • how to initiate a data offer and what information to include
  • how to complete the deposit form and sign the licence
  • how to prepare the data and documentation and send the materials to our collections development team

The webinar will also briefly introduce the key benefits of depositing data with the UK Data Service as well as our licencing framework and will conclude with a 10 minutes Q&A session.
