Description

A Fedora repository allows users to store and access large amounts of data and its accompanying metadata. Our Fluor tool allows users to connect to such a Fedora repository. The tool has been built for the University of Amsterdam (UvA) as a part of the UvA Communities project. The purpose of this tool is to make research data available to fellow scientists in a controlled and secure way.

Key features:

  • Access to Fedora repository where data and metadata is stored
  • High degree of customization as the structure of repository objects can be adjusted to virtually any situation (both data and metadata)
  • Data access workflow when users want to access data from secure objects
  • Data encryption to protect sensitive data
  • Security settings per site/object
  • Metadata adheres to the Dublin Core standards
  • Additional metadata fields can be defined and even organized in hierarchies
  • Context aware, it is thus possible to connect to multiple Fedora repositories from one Sakai instance
