Title:Data Repository Assessment and Certification: Experiences and Lessons Learned

Speaker:Jared Lyle (ICPSR, University of Michigan)

The Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) has participated in several repository audits and certifications. In 2006, it was a test case for Trusted Repositories Audit & Certification (TRAC, now ISO 16363). ICPSR was one of the first six data repositories to earn the Data Seal of Approval (DSA) in 2011. ICPSR earned the World Data System (WDS) certification in 2013. More recently, ICPSR completed and submitted an application for the CoreTrustSeal Data Repository certification, which replaces the DSA and WDS certifications.
The presentation discusses ICPSR's experiences and lessons learned from completing self-assessments and formal certifications.
