- Set in the context of a comparison of federal mandates for data management and federally funded data infrastructure initiatives in Australia and the United States, this paper will use a case study of Swinburne University of Technology in Australia to react to the recently released report of the 2010 Data Curation Research Summit (DCRS): https://www.ideals.illinois.edu/handle/2142/28355. With specific reference to the DCRS report's recommendation to recognize and address 'the limitations of library and document centered models' in providing 'guidance on the representation of research data' (p. 7), we will explore policy and practice imperatives at Australian and US universities that support and encumber effective and efficient data deposit.
