Last week I had a poster at the Information Architecture conference on recent research into characteristics of Dataverse installations, and results. The poster is a case study of why and how we applied the persona creation process to installations of Dataverse software. Thanks to the community for being a part of the effort, through responses to the survey and interviews.

Thanks for sharing, Tania! This is a great poster. Unfortunately, I noticed it to late to include into my presentation at yesterday's consortium meeting of DataverseNO, so my own categorization of Dataverse repositories did not turn out as neat (https://twitter.com/PhilippConzett/status/1389614055309066243).

As for the Persona / Archetype Single Topic Installation, there is actually (at least) one single topic Dataverse-based repository not belonging to the Social Sciences, namely the Tromsø Repository of Language and Linguistics (TROLLing; https://trolling.uit.no/). Technically, TROLLing is currently a collections / sub-dataverse within DataverseNO, but will (most probably) be moved to its own installation.

Best, Philipp

Hi Philipp, 

Thank you for sharing the map! While I am aware of the consortium model, and had an archetype based on that primary characteristic for a while, I had not thought much about how consortiums can include repositories of different types, as you point out with the TROLLing example. Your map also made me think about the situation that some Domain-Specific installations represent consortiums of government and non-government organizations. It is a different perspective to consider the number of repositories within installations, what groups the repositories represent, and what this means in terms of goals and scale, management and responsibility. 

I hope that the three basic archetypes can serve as a foundation for other groupings of installations and/or repositories, that are defined as needed to help understand a situation or provide perspective. 

Best,
- Tania
