EPSCoR Award Funds Two ARSC Web Sites

Part of the NSF Research Infrastructure Improvement Cyberconnectivity Award, administered by Alaska EPSCoR, funded two new ARSC Web sites. One of these sites is Alaska Data Central, which is designed to serve as a central access point for data and metadata from across the University of Alaska system. The other is Scholarworks, an institutional repository holding UA library materials, theses and dissertations, meeting minutes, scientific posters, and archival footage and images.

Attention Researchers!

If your research involves the use of ARSC resources, remember to mention ARSC in your publications acknowledgments!  We recommend a statement similar to, "This work was supported in part by a grant of HPC resources from the Arctic Region Supercomputing Center and the University of Alaska Fairbanks".

Information about how to incorporate ARSC utilization into grant proposals is available in the ARSC knowledge base
