The Legacy Data search provides a
search interface for data, physical objects, and basic
proposal and site information submitted before 2005, when
the SSDB library was launched. The analog items now reside
at the Geological Data Center at Scripps
Institution of Oceanography (SIO). Use of these data is
regulated as follows:
- In support of proposals that remain active, and
pending availability of funds, previously submitted
analog holdings in the SSDB may be scanned on an
as-needed basis. However, the proponents will be
responsible for selecting which analog data are needed
in order to satisfy IODP reviews and requirements.
Proponents are also responsible for entering
to describe any scanned objects. Any new data
submissions must be in electronic format following the
current data submission guidelines.
- For all other use of analog data kept on file in the
SSDB, proponents and/or requesters will be responsible
for funding the migration of analog data into electronic
format and for entering them, with appropriate metadata
describing the scanned object(s), into the current
all-digital SSDB. Arrangements to scan a specific list
of data objects
can be made by contacting the IODP Science Support Office.
The requester will be billed by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (UCSD) at cost for this service.
