Are you a librarian, archivist, or information professional?

 

DataRescue Baggers 

As a DataRescue Bagger, you will: 

  • Do some quality assurance on the dataset to make sure the content is correct and corresponds to what was described in the app
  • Package the data into a bagit file (or "bag"), which includes basic technical metadata and upload it to final DataRefuge destination.

DataRescue Describers

DataRescue Describers work will create a CKAN account to help organize and fill out metadata for the datasets and URLs that have been downloaded. They link the bags of data to make it public and accessible.
