Research Data Collections in one slide

22 Feb 2018

Dear all,
looking through past presentations, I did not find a good option that
displays very concisely in one slide what our group has achieved and
what the specification is all about. Based on our P10 outputs
presentation I've drafted a single slide, see attached. Comments welcome
- I want to put this on our entry page or link to it from our
recommendation page if possible.
Best, Tobias

    Its good as is, but I have a few comments regardless:
    Any way to sneak in the wonderfully recursive notion that a collection of digital objects is itself a digital object? Perhaps a second phrase after
    (Research) data management beyond single objects
    Manage a collection of objects as an object in and of itself
    I find the small diagram in which a collection descends from a service to be a little obscure. I understand it but I’m not sure its helpful. I can imagine other, much more elaborate diagrams, that show collections, encompassing members, sharing some services universally and some services selectively, perhaps using colors or some sort of differently shaped portals into the collections, but nothing that would fit on this slide.

    I think the slide is good but also agree with Larry's comments. Not sure
    it's feasible but is there maybe a way to include the slice of the GDOC
    slide which shows a collection as a digital object?
    Sorry I can't be there in Berlin...

    Dear all,
    thank you for your thoughts so far. I agree that the recursive notion
    should be visible, but I also don't want to stir up semantic issues on
    this overview slide. But for now, I've taken Larry's suggested
    formulation into the slide.
    Tom suggested he can draft a better diagram and I think this is good.
    I'll also review the slides again next week; a better diagram is
    definitely needed, and I also like Bridget's suggestion to display the
    'collection as an object' notion somehow in there.
    Best, Tobias
