Wiki Version:
<p><em>The Collections Working Group of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) (<a href="https://www.rd-alliance.org/groups/pid-collections-wg.html" rel="nofollow">https://www.rd-alliance.org/groups/pid-collections-wg.html</a>) is a multidisciplinary effort to develop a cross-community approach to building, maintaining and sharing machine-actionable collections of data objects. We have developed an abstract data model for collections and an API that can be implemented by existing collection solutions. Our goal is to facilitate cross-collection interoperability and the development of common tools and services for sharing and expanding data collections within and across disciplines, and within and across repository boundaries. The RDA Collections API supports Create/Read/Update/Delete/List (CRUD/L) operations. It also supports set-based operations for Collections, such as finding matches on like items, finding the intersection and union of two collections, and flattening recursive collections. Individual API implementations can declaratively express, via a standard set of capabilities, the operations available for their collections. The Perseids Project at Tufts University is implementing this API for its collection of annotations on ancient texts. We will review the model and the functionality of the API and demonstrate how we have applied it to manage Perseids humanities data. We will also provide examples of how it is being applied for collections of data in other disciplines, including Climate Computing and Geoscience. Finally, we will solicit feedback from the participants in the workshop on the API and model and its applicability for other collections of cultural heritage data.</em></p>
