Data Capsule Appliance for Research Analysis of Restricted and Sensitive Data in Academic Libraries

This Institute of Museum and Library Services National Leadership Grant funded project ($320,546 2017-2019) is a partnership with eight academic libraries (Indiana University, Lafayette College, MIT, Rutgers University, Swarthmore College, University of California-Berkeley, University of California-Los Angeles, and the University of Virginia) to understand current library needs and practices in provisioning library services for computational access to special collections having constraints due to sensitivity or policy restrictions. It also will extend the HathiTrust Research Center (HTRC) Data Capsule service to broader needs of provisioning for analytical access to restricted collections across a range of library collections and study extensions of the HTRC Data Capsule to cloud computing environments for broader uses. Currently in its beginning phases, this panel will showcase key use cases for the HTRC Data Capsule at partner libraries and will seek input from others looking for similar technical solutions for born-digital content. The project estimates that it will have a national impact through the provision of a portable solution for accessing restricted and sensitive collections and by fostering a community and increased collaboration around the technical, organizational, and policy challenges of providing computational access to restricted collections, all under the rubric of connecting libraries to the HathiTrust Consortium and its hundreds of member libraries.

I'm a librarian, administrator and researcher who cares about how libraries impact our daily lives. I have a passion for structured data and can be easily drawn into a conversation about why we focus so much library energy on metadata and information systems.
