Using the Digital Commons platform for sharing research data internally and publicly.SciDataCon 2016 (2016)
The Albertsons Library at Boise State University manages the Institutional Repository, ScholarWorks, which runs on the Digital Commons platform, to make scholarly works widely available. When researchers working on a grant funded project needed a system to internally share and track data from their various projects, eventually making that data publicly available, we developed workflows to use the existing tools of the Digital Commons platform to meet their needs. As the Digital Commons system is designed to make works openly available, the capabilities of the system were stretched and reimagined to handle the internal sharing request. The benefits of using a system already managed and supported by the Library outweighed the limitations.
