Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Data Archive

Community case studies

Digital repatriation of research data is an important component of ATSIDA’s work and the team is committed to working with Indigenous Australian communities to develop relationships built on trust and respect.

Repatriation through ATSIDA will occur through a recognised cultural centre or community organisation (such as a language or knowledge centre) that has a computer terminal available for approved users. Responsibility to monitor access to the materials by individuals will devolve to the community organisation. Having said this, ATSIDA in consultation with the depositor will tag content as belonging to the separate social spheres as appropriate, for example gender, age, family, country to the extent that available information and resources permit.
