From eCrystals Federation Project
A considerable amount of work has been undertaken already in preparation for this project; in particular eBank-UK Phase 3 was a scoping study aimed at assessing the issues surrounding the development of a federation of crystallography data repositories. The final report for this project will be available soon...
The JISC funded eBank-UK, Repository for the Laboratory and SPECTR-a projects held a joint consultation workshop entitled "Digital Repositories supporting eResearch: exploring the eCrystals Federation Model". The transcript report of this meeting is available here.
A trimmed version of the successful proposal for the current project can be viewed here.
