Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Data Archive (ATSIDA)


The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Data Archive (ATSIDA) is a specialised trusted research data management facility for Australian Indigenous research data and is managed by the UTS Library. ATSIDA is a thematic archive within the Australian Data Archive (ADA) with its datasets stored securely at the Australian National University's National Computational Infrastructure (NCI).



ATSIDA is guided by a board of internationally recognised experts in Australian Indigenous research. Staff managing the data are experienced professionals in process and information management, indigenous research and digital preservation management.

As well as ensuring the storage and preservation of data relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, ATSIDA staff work closely with:

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities - managing appropriate access and return of digital materials.

Researchers - developing data management plans and providing contextual information relating to their research.

Higher education institutions - identifying nationally significant datasets and research projects as well as assisting with development of strategies to ensure preservation and access to data.

Government - influencing policies relating to, for example, research data, indigenous research material, intellectual property (IP) and moral rights.

International organisations - collaborating with international indigenous policy developers and researchers.
