Introduction to FRDR, Lunaris, and Borealis | Introduction à DFDR, Lunaris et Borealis

Event Language

English, Français and bilingual/bilingue



Date: 13 February 2024

This session will provide an overview of three nationally-supported Research Data Management (RDM) Platforms and Services, the Federated Research Data Repository (FRDR); Borealis, the Canadian Dataverse Repository; and Lunaris, Canada’s national data discovery service. FRDR is a bilingual publishing platform for sharing and preserving Canadian research data in any discipline. The repository is purpose-built for large datasets and provides a curation service to assist researchers with deposit. Borealis is a bilingual, multidisciplinary, Canadian research data repository, supported by academic libraries and research institutions across Canada. Borealis supports open discovery, management, sharing, and preservation of Canadian research data via institutionally-hosted and supported collections and contains national collections such as Odesi, a curated, Canadian social science data repository and online exploration and analysis tool. Lunaris harvests metadata from over 100 academic, government, and research data repositories across Canada, and makes their content discoverable in a central platform that allows combined text- and map-based search. Participants will leave this session with an understanding of how each platform can be used to support the research lifecycle.
