Purdue Data Depot for Research Workgroup File Storage

Dear College of Education Researchers,

Are you looking for network file storage for your research workgroup? Now that the Purdue Data Depot has been created, Education IT is recommending that all research workgroups consider using the Purdue Data Depot which is designed specifically for research workgroups and research data. Here is the web site:

Purdue Data Depot
https://www.rcac.purdue.edu/storage/depot/

And here is a description from the web site:

“The Data Depot is a high-capacity, fast, reliable and secure data storage service designed, configured and operated for the needs of Purdue researchers in any field and shareable with both on-campus and off-campus collaborators.”

“All research groups at Purdue are eligible for a 100 GB Data Depot trial space free of charge.”

We believe the Purdue Data Depot will be a better solution than using traditional file storage systems that research groups have used in the past. You can initiate a request for the free 100 GB of research storage space by sending email to rcac-help@purdue.edu or by going to this web page:

Data Depot Purchase Page
https://www.rcac.purdue.edu/purchase/depot/
(See “Purchase Now” button at bottom of the Data Depot web page linked above)

The Research Computing Group can walk you through the process of setting up a shared storage space for your research workgroup. Then, the Education IT team can assist you in gaining access via your office workstation(s) or laptop(s) as needed. If you need more space than the free 100 GB, you can purchase additional increments of 1 TB for $150.00 per year.

Please feel free to contact the Research Computing Group directly. Or, if you prefer, the Education IT team would be happy to contact them on your behalf.

Thank you!

Emergency Preparedness Video: Shots Fired on Campus Video

Below an article from the SecurePurdue web site that includes a link to a video:

http://www.purdue.edu/securePurdue/news/2010/emergency-preparedness-shots-fired-on-campus-video.cfm

“Shots Fired on Campus: When Lightning Strikes,” is a 20-minute video that illustrates what to look for and how to prepare and react, said Carol Shelby, senior director of environmental health and public safety. The video is available online at https://www.purdue.edu/securepurdue/police/video. A Purdue career account and password are necessary to log on to view the video. Its release to the Purdue community coincides with National Emergency Preparedness Month.

“This video stresses awareness, preparation and rehearsal, the keys to safety,” Shelby said. “Students, faculty and staff can take the training on their own and access it anytime they want, but some professors also may want to play it in their classrooms.”

The video was produced by the Center for Personal Protection and Safety, based in Spokane, Wash., and is being shown at several college campuses around the nation, Shelby said. The center is composed of former U.S. Department of Defense and FBI officials and is dedicated to researching and disseminating best practices in workplace violence prevention and travel safety. It is responsible for much of the federal government’s current teaching and training on crisis negotiations, workplace violence, abduction prevention and hostage survival situations.

Shelby said Purdue linked with the center through the university’s participation in the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Agencies, an organization involved in safety and security on college campuses.
