Representatives from CNI member organizations gather twice annually to explore new technologies, content, and applications; to further collaboration; to analyze technology policy issues, and to catalyze the development and deployment of new projects. Each member organization may send two representatives. Visit https://www.cni.org/mm/fall-2018 for more information.

3.8 First Steps in Research Data Management Under Constraints of a National Security Laboratory

Research data management efforts, including the implementation of tools, development of best practices, and training of scholars, have taken center stage in many academic libraries. What is unique about the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) Research Library, however, is the technology and policy environment in which we have launched our collaborative data management pilot "Nucleus." Based on a local installation of the open source software Open Science Framework, we have established a platform that offers connectors to local storage, internal source code repositories, and LANL's institutional review and release system.

In this presentation, we will highlight interviews and surveys conducted with LANL scientists to distill their highest-priority data management needs at LANL, outline laboratory-specific constraints relevant to the implementation of our pilot project, offer a functionality overview of Nucleus, and share feedback received as the result of initial outreach activities. It is our intention to share the lessons we have learned with the CNI community, as we believe that, even though LANL's environment is unique, other institutions may find themselves in similar situations and can benefit from our approach of locally hosted software platforms.
