The DOLCe Initiative: Connecting libraries and advanced computing
We present the Digital Object LifeCycle (DOLCe) initiative, an extension of the ongoing partnership between the University of Texas at Austin Libraries (UTL) and the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC). The pilot project described in this presentation focused on enabling larger data publication within a data repository that UTL manages for the UT research community. The repository is a consortial data repository called the Texas Data Repository (TDR), and is hosted by the Texas Digital Library. Our pilot was funded by UT's Planet Texas 2050 program. It allows researchers to publish larger datasets via the repository, by connecting the TDR's Dataverse software with TACC storage systems and improving the file upload process.
