We will offer a work-in-progress report on Starfish, a software solution designed to tackle the challenges associated with managing research data. Topics will include tiered storage, archiving, delivering on data management plans, chargeback/showback, and the hand-off between research and library. We will provide examples from our work at Harvard Medical School and the Library of Congress.

OUTCOMES: Discover how to capture metadata throughout scientific workflows to enable rules-based storage management and reporting * Explore how to reduce costs by tiering data storage resources * Investigate how to reduce risk by automating processes for archiving and data protection and by ensuring compliance with obligations created by data management plans specified in grant applications
