Oleg Nekhayenko studied Information Science and Language Technologies B.A. at Heinrich-Heine-University Düsseldorf and International Information Management M.A. at the University of Hildesheim. In 2016 he joined German National Library of Science and Technology where he is currently working as a research assistant in the digital preservation team. He is responsible for the project, which deals with the implementation of a repository for field research data and the transfer into a digital preservation system.

Sponsor Talk: The relevance of FAIR principles and digital preservation by implementing a data repository at a research institution
Nowadays storing multimedia field research data in their personal closed archive is still a widely spread practise among researchers. Thus this data is neither findable nor accessible and reusable for other members of the scientific community. A provisional solution to this problem is a publication of multimedia research data on global web platforms such as Youtube, Dropbox or Google Drive. This data is also not suitable for scientific purposes, because it’s neither persistently referenced nor scientifically documented according to any relevant standards. The main objective of the project „LaZAR“ is the conception and implementation of a web platform for field research data from the regional science according to FAIR principles including a repository, web laboratory for multimedia research data and digital preservation of the data. This makes the field research data as easily accessible and citable to a wide range of researchers as conventional data. The LAZAR-repository is set up by the Head Office of the GBV common library network and the institute for Caucasus Studies of Friedrich-Schiller University Jena using the Media-Asset-Management-system easydb. Digital preservation providing is managed by the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) using the digital preservation system Rosetta by Ex Libris. TIB has configured Rosetta to harvest the objects and their metadata via OAI-PMH from easydb and ensures the access to, readability and usability of the data and metadata in the long term according to OAIS reference model in a trustworthy digital archive. The lecture covers how the LaZAR-repository and Rosetta match the FAIR principles and describes the data transfer from the repository into TIB’s digital archive.
