As a student intern, you will be part of the Research and Prototyping Team led by Martin Klein in the LANL Research Library.
The team explores various aspects of scholarly communication and open science in the digital age. The team’s efforts mainly focus on information infrastructure, information interoperability, and long-term persistence of the scholarly record. For example, they lead the development and standardization of interoperability frameworks such as Memento, to access past versions of the web resources, ResourceSync, to synchronize repository systems, and Signposting, to help machines navigate scholarly communications infrastructure on the web.
Current efforts include the “Nucleus” project, where the team is implementing a collaborative research data management platform based on a local installation of the Open Science Framework open-source software and the “Scholarly Orphans” project, which focuses on web-centric approaches to archive scholarly artifacts.
