Tools for Sharing and Preserving Documents and Data

IDEALS is the digital repository for research and scholarship produced at the University of Illinois which is optimized for documents (e.g., publications, reports, presentations, posters). IDEALS currently houses a collection of more than 6,300 Prairie Research Institute documents (1,823 from INHS). Similarly, the recently launched Illinois Data Bank is a stable, file-based repository for Illinois research, but is optimized for research data (e.g., measurements, observations, model output) in a range of formats. Thirty-one datasets have been deposited so far, including one from INHS.    

All University of Illinois faculty, academic professionals, and graduate students can deposit work into IDEALS and the Illinois Data Bank.

Why do we have two repositories?  How are they different?  How are they related?  How can you use them to preserve and share your work?

How do they fit in to archiving efforts of the Prairie Research Institute?
