Usability Testing for the Federated Research Data Repository

Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on August 31, 2020 in Announcements

The FRDR team would like to ask for your help in improving the Federated Research Data Repository (FRDR). FRDR is an online Canadian research data repository and discovery service jointly developed by the Canadian Association of Research Librarians (CARL), the Portage Network, and Compute Canada.

The team is looking for graduate students or faculty from a range of disciplines and regions across Canada who are willing to try out FRDR and give feedback while using it. The session will last one hour and will be conducted through WebEx.

Eligible participants must:

  • be new to FRDR,
  • collect research data that could potentially be published in a repository (not required for the usability testing), and
  • be a graduate student or faculty member

David Pinelle, Computation Research Manager in the Social Sciences Research Laboratories at the University of Saskatchewan, will be running the usability testing sessions.

If you are willing to participate, or know someone who is, please send an email to
