A Citizen Science Soil Collection project at the University of Oklahoma (http://npdg.ou.edu/citizenscience) received huge publicity in 2015 and the lead researcher partnered with OU Libraries for assistance in organizing and making available the specialized research data from his lab’s work in the state’s consortial DSpace repository, SHAREOK (https://shareok.org). In this talk we’ll discuss and demonstrate a custom Mirage 2 theme with customized facets, inline images and maps, and a Darwin Core metadata schema.
