Virginia Tech Libraries, in partnership with the departments of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science, as well as the University of North Texas Department of Library and Information Sciences, will engage in a two-year research grant to develop a broadly adaptable library cyberinfrastructure strategy for big data sharing and reuse. The strategy is based on intelligently matching and synthesizing five types of existing cyberinfrastruture options against key requirements extracted from three representative library big data services. The strategy will be validated against different experimental deployments of these services.
