    This poster will describe several issues as well as the work undertaken in relation to the effective curation and preservation of crystallography data within the context of the eCrystals Federation Project. The aim of the Project is to enhance the management of crystallography data at the institution level, incorporating data generated in departments, laboratories and by individual researchers or practitioners; consequently, the work described is concerned with the development of approaches to the preservation and curation of crystallography data in open repositories. For the crystallography community, the long-term provision of data is particularly important since structure determination can only be truly repeated or verified when the raw data is available. In addition, the availability of raw and derived data is very useful for reanalysis and reprocessing as improved methods for performing these tasks emerge.
