December POLDER updates: Upcoming Workshops

Save the dates! WDS-ITO will be hosting two online workshops in early 2023 to help repositories work through the POLDER Best Practice Guide version 1.0 and complete the recommended markup in order to be included in the Polar Federated Search

Following community best practices and standards, such as the POLDER Best Practise Guide, further improves data interoperability and discoverability by enabling repository data to be included in the POLDER Federated Search. Being included in the POLDER Federated Search will increase the visibility of repository data, increasing the opportunity for reuse by researchers around the globe. 

The first workshop will be embedded within the Polar to Global Hackathon on January 26th, 2023, 20:00 – 22:00 UTC. This event will provide hands-on experience with applying the best practices while simultaneously testing any potential limitations they may have. This session is framed as a hackathon and will be intensive.

The second workshop on February 7, 2023, 16:00-18:00 UTC will address individual applications of the best practices and inclusion in the POLDER Federated Search, and will provide an opportunity for community feedback.

More information about both workshops can be found on their event pages, which will be updated with more information closer to the events. These sessions will be open to everyone, so mark your calendars and we hope to see you there!
