Digital Mineral Library

The John de Laeter Centre’s (JDLC’s) Digital Mineral Library is an innovative approach for researchers to seamlessly capture and disseminate data and metadata generated during the analysis of rock and mineral samples. The software and IT infrastructure to be installed in the Centre will enable the capture of analytical data from scientific instruments, and collect metadata from the researchers conducting the analysis. The data will be made accessible to the AuScope Discovery Portal, which in turn will make it accessible to public users. The system will provide metadata to Research Data Australia (RDA) and to the AuScope Discovery Portal.
