Description

This chapter provides a detailed description of the DIG Data Publication Initiative (DIG), which was partially supported by the Catalyst project. DIG is the UCLA Cotsen Institute’s new effort to establish an archaeological digital data publication service. The DIG team is not attempting to construct or maintain preservation services or a repository, and instead partners with institutions with this expertise and these services. By directly referencing the best practices and standards of the Linked Open Data movement, this chapter complements the section of the book on digital publication/data dissemination/data curation. This contribution is of interest to specialized and non-specialized readers, especially because it describes DIG as a fruitful collaboration between a university library and an academic unit.
