The DART project undertook a coordinated program of e-Research requirements analysis, software development, policy and guideline creation and prototyping to investigate how best to: (1) collect, capture and retain large data sets and streams from a range of different sources; (2) deal with the infrastructure issues of scale, sustainability and interoperability between repositories; (3) support deposit into, access to, and annotation by a range of actors, to a set of digital libraries which include publications, datasets, simulations, software and dynamic knowledge representations; (4) assist researchers in dealing with intellectual property issues during the research process; and (5) adopt next-generation methods for research publication, dissemination and access. In this short paper we will describe a case study using an X-ray diffractometer. We report on the implementation and some of the issues encountered during the implementation.
