The Shared BigData Gateway for Research Libraries is a two-year project to develop, seed, and maintain a cloud-based, extendable cyberinfrastructure for sharing large academic library data resources with a growing community of scholars. The team will create a sustainable and shared resource for current and future big data mining and analysis. The project will facilitate sharing of data derivatives, metadata, annotations, visualizations, algorithms, and results according to user preferences, stimulating collaboration and knowledge discovery. The team will commence important conversations aimed at exploring collective regional and national solutions for hosting, curating, and maintaining library-owned and leased data collections for libraries of all sizes.
