Dataverse: Guide for Researchers: Home


Repository Services 

Dataverse is an online, publicly accessible data repository platform. The University of Manitoba Libraries supports a version of Dataverse within Borealis for UM faculty and researchers to deposit and publish data. UM Dataverse provides data citations and can help meet data access requirements from publishers and funders. Dataverse is a secure system with all data held on Canadian servers and provides for customization of access and restrictions to data based on researcher needs. The UM Access and Privacy Office has conducted a privacy impact assessment and approved the use of Dataverse.

The term is used to refer to the data repository platform itself ('Dataverse'), and to refer to spaces within the platform which are created for each research project ('dataverse').  By request, your librarian will create a dataverse for you on the Dataverse platform.

Faculty and researchers must speak with their liaison librarian FIRST before working with UM Dataverse. Your liaison librarian will work with the Research Data Management Librarian or other librarian from Research Services and Digital Strategies unit, University of Manitoba Libraries to clarify data storage requirements and that the nature of your research is allowed to be deposited in UM Dataverse. Your liaison will provide you with a demonstration of the system, help you to establish a file structure and user roles, and provide ongoing support as needed. Not sure who your liaison librarian is? Check our list of librarians by subject area.
