Local data often more detailed…

Enormous amount of data

Risk data: future supports of data formats; web services; no metadata; geospatial databases – difficult to archive


Trying to influence data producers in NC

Using Dspace repository;

Changing thinking: ajax


Odom institute:

Data-pass: meeting the challenges of a digital data world

Survey, polls data – how to preserve these archives? Social science purposes

  1. * Antibush says:

    Bush goes ballistic about other countries being evil and dangerous, because they have weapons of mass destruction. But, he insists on building up even a more deadly supply of nuclear arms right here in the US. What do you think? Is killing thousands of innocent civilians okay when you are doing a little government makeover?
    Our country is in debt until forever, we don’t have jobs, and we live in fear. We have invaded a country and been responsible for thousands of deaths.
    We have lost friends and influenced no one. No wonder most of the world thinks we suck. Thanks to what george bush has done to our country during the past three years, we do!
