Integrating an ELN with a university's long term Datashare archive.

This article discusses a recent initiative at the University of Edinburgh to solve this problem by integrating the RSpace ELN with their DataShare long-term archiving system. Longevity of digital data is always an issue, and as more and more scientists make the jump to ELNs, the importance of archiving data for future generations is often overlooked. Imagine what a loss it would be if there were no equivalent to "Down House" (where Darwin's notes and data are kept).
