Abstract

Even within a single department in an institution, research-related data exists everywhere: different formats, inconsistent databases, separate environments. In a typical situation, this data unlikely to be directly accessible, nor visible to, or perhaps even known to exist by the person or group that it pertains to. This leads to a number of problems: access, being a difficult, disjointed experience for those who seek the information; poor quality or incompleteness, as the information may be hidden and not maintained; and a potential lack of consistency across different uses of the data. Through exposing useful data from primary sources in a logical and consistent fashion, great improvements across a research institution are possible.
