Research Data Australia uses a range of records describing collection, party, activity, service. QUT will need to develop metadata records. Ellen Thompson and Craig Milne are QUTs data librarians who are contacting and interviewing QUT researchers to describe our Datasets from category 1 ARC and NHMRC research grants. www.tils.qut.edu.au Research data management

Data capture project QUT and ANDS are developing a proposal to automatically capture machine generated metadata to contribute to Research Data Australia. Identify machine generated datasets that are unique, or of significant interest

Identify and describe the datasets Develop software to interface the machine Start data feed to Research Data Australia Colleen Nelson and other QUT researchers www.tils.qut.edu.au Research data management Australian Research Collaboration Service (ARCS) ARCS is also funded by NCRIS. Its purpose is to develop collaboration services, including network infrastructure
