Brief Description of the Collaboratory :


This project built and deployed a demonstration system linking publications held in two institutional repositories (Southampton University and the CCLRC) with data holdings in the British Atmospheric Data Centre. As well as the demonstration system, a workshop disseminating information about the project was held in2007 for the environmental science community, and four significant reports were produced:

1)User Experience of the CLADDIER System (written by active environmental scientists based on their experiences)
2)Identifier Migration Issues for Repositories
3)Recommendations for data/publication linkage (based on lessons learned, and a review of the literature)
4)Methodologies and Practices for Data Publication.

The CLADDIER system was a step on the road to a situation where (in this case, environmental) scientists will to be able to move seamlessly from information discovery (location), through acquisition to deposition of new material, with all the digital objects correctly identified and cited. The lessons learned are of applicability for the relationships between other discipline based repositories and institutional repositories.
