About the ADA Indigenous archive

UTS was invited to establish a national trusted repository for Indigenous data in 2008. This ADA sub-archive manages the collection and storage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research data. This addresses the need to manage research data in this priority area by collecting often dispersed data and managing it in accordance with appropriate protocols, drawing on the expertise jointly developed by Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning and the UTS Library.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations and issues relating to them continue to attract much study. But frequently, often due to ethical concerns intrinsic to small population research compounded by the particular aspects relating to Indigenous peoples, datasets are not made available for secondary analysis. It is important to collect and preserve these fragmented research resources and to make them available for further research, under appropriate protocols, so as to reduce the response burden on Indigenous communities while enabling informed analysis and commentary in areas of national priority.
