We now have a way to make all datasets indexed by the Federated Research Data Repository (FRDR) findable in ProQuest’s Central Discovery Index (CDI). Academic libraries using Summon, Primo, or Alma can now easily include records from FRDR in their discovery service using the ProQuest CDI. Simply navigate to your library’s ProQuest Client Center, search for FRDR, and include it in your ProQuest subscriptions. Detailed instructions are available on FRDR. Many thanks to our partners at UBC Library for working with ProQuest on this initiative to increase the discoverability of Canadian research data!
FRDR is a steward of Canada’s largest index of research metadata, and currently harvests metadata from over 70 Canadian research data repositories for inclusion in its discovery service, with more repositories being added.
