Scholars Portal Dataverse rebrands as Borealis to reflect national scale

The Scholars Portal Dataverse has announced that it is rebranding as Borealis, the Canadian Dataverse Repository / le dépôt Dataverse canadien. The new name was developed to reflect the growth of the dataverse from a regional service to a national one. The name evokes the Canadian landscape and is meant to be reflective of the over 60 academic libraries and research institutions across Canada that use the service. “We are thrilled to debut as Borealis,” said Kate Davis, Interim Director of Scholars Portal. “This new name is the culmination of a collaborative effort with representatives from the four regional library consortia, the Digital Research Alliance of Canada, and members of the research data community, to develop a name that reflects the new identity of our service and our commitment to bilingualism.” The change will come into effect on June 23rd.
