Dash Receives Sautter Award for Innovation in Information Tech

For the second year in a row, a California Digital Library service has captured a Larry L. Sautter Award for Innovation in Information Technology. This year the silver Sautter award went to the Dash team for its user-friendly platform for managing, archiving and sharing research data.

Dash is an open source, community driven project that takes a unique approach to data publication and digital preservation. Dash focuses on search, presentation, and discovery and delegates the responsibility for the data preservation function to the underlying repository with which it is integrated. The service is based at the University of California Curation Center (UC3), a CDL program that aims to develop interdisciplinary research data infrastructure.

The Sautter Awards were established by the University of California’s Information Technology Leadership Council in 2000 and are awarded annually to “encourage and recognize innovative deployment of information technology in support of the University’s mission.” Dash is one of ten winners of the Sautter Award this year.
