Bibliometric researchers and academic libraries are facing a research data crisis. Libraries that can afford to purchase big bibliometric datasets often can’t afford to provide the necessary infrastructure to make the data usable, including services to host, clean, and update data, provide data security, or create a feasible data-mining interface. The Collaborative Archive & Data Research Environment (CADRE), funded across nine university libraries from Big Ten Academic Alliance institutions, is building an affordable, cloud-based infrastructure that will accomplish all of these functions and give researchers better access to the data. By maintaining a shared infrastructure for standardized, high-quality data and promoting digital object identifiers, CADRE will advance reproducibility in research and improve data provenance. Additionally, we will empower researchers to work with big data by offering a graphical user interface query-builder for easy querying, a coding environment for creating data analysis and visualization tools, a marketplace for sharing and reproducing tools and research, and a personal repository for saving results.
