Collaborative Archive & Data Research Environment (CADRE)

The Big Ten Academic Alliance and its institutions are founding members of the Collaborative Archive & Data Research Environment (CADRE).  This platform provides affordable, sustainable, and standardized text-and data-mining services for licensed big datasets as well as open and non-consumptive datasets too large to manage within existing research library environments. Built with the end user in mind, the platform can be used without programming or data science experience. CADRE offers a cloud-based solution with security, stewardship, and storage at a fraction of the cost of building a local independent platform.
The project is led by Indiana University Libraries in collaboration with the Indiana University Network Science Institute and the Big Ten Academic Alliance. Initial funding for the project was provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services Grant: Shared BigData Gateway for Research Libraries (SBD-G) and additional support is provided by industry and library partners.
