Data @ Reed

Data Storage

Basic Storage

  • Data may be stored initially on lab computers
  • For some data, it may be appropriate to upload it to external storage devices like Reed's network file system AFS or to a cloud-based server like Google Drive
  • Security recommendations from Reed:

Long-Term Storage

  • Store copies of data in open, stable formats (e.g., .txt, .csv, .tiff) for long term accessibility
  • Keep a copy in the original format
  • Upload the dataset to a data repository and assign it a persistent identifier (DOI)
  • Contact David Isaak, Data Services Librarian if you have questions
