A consortial instance of Dataverse local preservation repository.
A constellation of platforms and services that support data curation.
In 2013, UConn Libraries launched the Connecticut Digital Archive, a program that provides long-term
preservation services to Connecticut based non-proﬁts. Essentially, UConn Libraries is a customer of
itself and uses this technology to support a site that accepts research data.
Our data collection is quite small; we’ve accepted a couple of deposits for researchers who needed a

Self-deposit institutional repository + 2 format-speciﬁc repositories for large collections of images or
We are currently using a stand-alone data archive but we are migrating to Fedora 4 for both

We have several repositories, one for ETDs that technically meets the deﬁnition of an IR, but we do not
