The ADS has been interested in the re-use of the data in our archive for as long as the ADS has been preserving data. Providing access and preserving data for others to re-use is why we do what we do!
While tracking of quantitative usage statistics is standard for most online archaeological resources, gaining qualitative understanding and strong examples of data re-use has always been more difficult.
As a result we have instigated a guest post series intended to acknowledge the wide range of research carried out that re-uses data preserved and disseminated by the ADS and raise awareness of the research potential of data re-use in archaeology and beyond.
As the year progresses we will publish a number of guest blog posts from archaeological and historic environment researchers from around the world, highlighting the wonderful and varied ways in which ADS archive data is re-used.
- ‘It Makes You Feel Like Working as a Real Scientist’: Using data provided by the ADS for digital archaeological teaching and learning at the University of Vienna.
As new posts are published they will be added to the above list.
The ADS would love to hear of your experiences re-using our archived data. Pitch us a post by emailing email@example.com
