Canadian Polar Data Network (CPDN)
OCUL is a member of the Canadian Polar Data Network (CPDN). Established in 2010 with funding from the Canadian International Polar Year Program Office - Aboriginal Affairs & Northern Development Canada, the ongoing and evolving mission of the CPDN is to provide a sustainable research data management infrastructure, encompassing preservation and access, for polar (Arctic and Antarctic) science research and monitoring initiated from and taking place in Canada.
OCUL’s contribution to the project, through Scholars Portal, focuses on the development of a number of digital preservation environments connected through the CANARIE high-speed research network, providing redundant preservation-quality storage for collected polar research data.
