Searching data 

All members of the faculty can search data in DAG. All data packages, both open and restricted, can be found via the search functionality. Only the metadata that is entered during the deposit will be searchable. Your pending deposits cannot be found via search. 

You can search via the main search-bar above the menu. It will provide you with initial search-results, which you can further refine. From the search-results you can navigate to the landing page of a specific data package and assess in detail whether the data package is of relevance to you.
