RDA Recommendation Spotlight of the Month : The Research Data Switchboard

Publié le 29 juin 2016, par Thérèse Hameau

The Research Data Switchboard is the implementation of the Data Description Registry Interoperability (DDRI) WG recommendation. The Switchboard project addresses the problem of cross-platform discovery by creating a software solution that connects datasets across multiple registries. The best metaphor for this solution is the SEE ALSO section in online bookstores, where customers are invited to look at other products by the same author, related topics or similar publishers. The RD-Switchboard source code has been adopted by the following institutions : NCI – National Computational Infrastructure, Australia, ANDS – Australian National Data Service, University of Sydney, Australia and National Institute of Informatics, Japan.
