Lenses

A lens is a custom view of the content in the repository. You can think of it as a fancy kind of list that will let you see content through the eyes of organizations and people you trust.

What is in a lens?

Lens makers point to materials (modules and collections), creating a guide that includes their own comments and descriptive tags about the content.

Who can create a lens?

Any individual member, a community, or a respected organization.

What are tags? tag icon

Tags are descriptors added by lens makers to help label content, attaching a vocabulary that is meaningful in the context of the lens.

Access Regulations for Data Sets

Module by: Alex Voss. E-mail the author

Summary: Access regulations for datasets can be a barrier or inhibitor to uptake of e-Infrastructure services.

Access to datasets is often regulated for a number of reasons such as ensuring adequate usage, because of licensing issues or simply to keep track of usage.

Example 1

Even where datasets are generally available, there may be a requirement for researchers to notify the data archive of their usage. Such notifications are often dealt with on an individual basis, so where a group of people need access to a dataset for research or teaching, the process of registering a particular usage needs to be repeated. Changes in the regulations place an additional burden on researchers, lecturers and students.

"The one thing, one aspect of working with UK Data Archive that produces challenges in the sort of things that I am involved with might be in to do with sharing datasets between people and indeed using datasets in teaching examples and in undergraduate and postgraduate workshops that I am involved in training, training people to use specials survey datasets, special survey datasets, [I: is the sharing problem, sorry] the process of instructing people how to individually go about accessing the files and ensuring that people are allowed to access the same files individually and in order to give the data to other people essentially, the process of doing that it changes, the instructions that you need to pass on to people regularly change over time and that could make it a relatively challenging thing and the expectation that every one is able to access the same services, you know, well to me, that’s the relatively minor problem in itself but if you think of whether there is a room for improvements."
