We are presenting a tutorial on Globus data publication and discovery at this year's Open Repositories conference. Please join us to learn how the Globus service can be used to manage digital assets throughout the research lifecycle.
Exhibit: Booth 16
We are also pleased to sponsor the conference and will have an exhibit where attendees can meet with Globus team members. Stop by and let's discuss your research data management needs.

The management and publication of large research datasets presents challenges for researchers, librarians, and campus data center providers alike. While existing campus data providers typically have large storage allocations they are limited in their reach and utility due, in part, to unreliable tools and a wide variety of storage systems with sub-optimal user interfaces. Further, they do not yet support the high-level workflows and submission and access policies required for data publication. In this session, participants will learn how to use the data management and publication capabilities provided by Globus to publish large research datasets. Unlike other approaches, Globus provides research data management and publication capabilities as a hosted service, available to the broader research community. Globus can therefore be leveraged by researchers across the globe to seamlessly manage, transfer, synchronize, share and publish datasets without needing to manage the low-level technical challenges associated with such activities independent of data location, size or heterogeneity. Attendees will be introduced to Globus and have the opportunity for hands-on interaction with these systems. We will describe how Globus services for public cloud storage integration and data publication can be used by institutions to meet an increasingly common need by campus libraries.
