Technical Projects

These are the technical projects that together are developing the core CWRC infrastructure, comprised of the repository, a layer of web services, and a user interface. The platform development relies on the oversight and expertise of CWRC researchers, draws on the open-source software development community, and emerges from partnerships with various groups including the Software Engineering Research Lab, the University of Alberta Libraries, and private sector partners. Some components of the infrastructure are not yet in active development.
