Created and managed by the Library, DataSpace@HKUST is the data repository and workspace service for HKUST research community. Faculty members and research postgraduate students can use the platform to store, share, organize, preserve and publish research data. It is built on Dataverse, an open source web application developed at Harvard’s Institute for Quantitative Social Science. Using Dataverse architecture, the repository hosts multiple "dataverses". Each dataverse contains datasets; while each dataset may contain multiple data files and the corresponding descriptive metadata.
