Summary of steps for archiving CoEDL material in PARADISEC

  • Contact CoEDL Data Manager ( to start a collection in PARADISEC
  • Set up a user account. Once you get an email from PARADISEC (automated, so a quick process), you may set a new password
  • Organise your data and determine how many items you will need
  • Add metadata for each item in the minimal metadata spreadsheet, Exsite9, or directly in the catalogue. Enrich the metadata for each item in the catalog 
  • Once the files are named and your items are in the archive with the minimal metadata, send me your files (in-person transfer or via our shared drive system Cloudstor) and I will upload them to the server. Once you decide you have finished editing the metadata, you can tick the box “Metadata ready for export”
  • Fill out a deposit form and send the signed, scanned .pdf along with your data files
