Library Researcher Dashboard and Research Data Outage

ITDS has regular, scheduled IT outages to ensure improvement, upgrades and maintenance to all of our IT services to improve the digital experience for all. Regular maintenance periods are scheduled to minimise the impact on the vital operations to all students and staff.

As a result, there will be an extended disruption to the Library's Research Data Management application that will start at 5:00pm, Friday 07/12/2018 and finish at 5:00pm Wednesday 12/12/2018.

The Library's Researcher Dashboard enables the creation of Data Management Plans which comply with the University’s Research Data Management Policy. The ‘Describe my data’ tab enables researchers to describe and send archival datasets to Library staff for uploading to ResearchDirect and Research Data Australia. During this extended outage, the Dashboard and published dataset records will be unavailable.

 We apologise for this inconvenience and please don't hesitate to contact the Library for additional information. If you have any IT issues after the upgrade period has ended, please contact the ITDS Service Desk via itservicedesk@westernsydney.edu.au, (02) 9852 5111 or ext 5111.
