Preservation Portals

17 Jan 2014

Dear all,

Although in High Energy Physics (HEP) we have in excess of 100PB of data which is "preserved" (including the associated software, documentation, meta-data, "knowledge", etc.) we have no obvious way for people to find what data is available, what it corresponds to, what are the access conditions etc.

So we intend to setup a Portal and would be grateful to learn of other similar efforts.


One was mentioned at the RDA P2 IG meeting: but I am sure that there are others.


Please let me know - preferably by responding to this post - if you have something similar.


Thanks a lot, Jamie (for Data Preservation in HEP; DPHEP:;
