Can I integrate data into the Media Suite?
For curators/data owners
The current instance of CKAN implemented for the CLARIAH Media Suite includes datasets that we have registered (by harvesting or importing them) on behalf of the collection owners. The Media Suite works as an “aggregator” of collections, which are incorporated in close collaboration with the contributing institutions and scholars. See FAQ: What kind of data is available via the Media Suite?
In the near future, more organisations can register their collections and add data themselves. Registration with an open licence is possible, but private access is also possible. The data itself can be added to each registered collection using different formats (e.g., XML, JSON, RDF).
- Note: CLARIAH also offers other data registration services (see Anansi information ; Anansi video ). Aligning these services is work in progress.
- For questions or suggestions related to the Data services of the CLARIAH Media Suite, please use our Collections chat room in Gitter .
Note: Institutions making available their collections via the Media Suite are responsible for creating and making full documentation of the metadata schemas available. A good practice is to provide metadata dictionaries.
Note: Registering your own personal datasets is not supported yet. But you can make your own “ User collections ” available via your Workspace.
