This guide explains the what, why and how of Research Data Management at Sheridan College.

Federated Research Data Repository (FRDR)

The Federated Research Data Repository (FRDR) is the resource resulting from a collaboration between PortageCompute Canada (CC) and the Canadian Association of Research Libraries (CARL). FRDR is a scalable, bilingual, federated platform for digital research data management (RDM) and discovery 

FRDR's search tool "provides a focal point to discover and access Canadian research data, while the range of services provided by FRDR helps researchers store and manage their data, preserve their research for future use, and comply with institutional and funding agency data management requirements".
