The increasing prominence of interdisciplinary studies, coupled with the mass digitization and dissemination of primary sources and scholarly literature alike, has made it possible for scholars to pursue boundary-defying research agendas in ways that were previously impossible.

Particularly when pursuing research questions that stretch across space and time, scholars inevitably encounter materials in languages with which they are unfamiliar.

The bDrive repository offers everyone at UC Berkeley unlimited storage, strong search capabilities, and mobile access. This storage is an important data management resource for research teams. The standard web client, however, does not always work well when dealing with very large files, many files, or deep folder structures. The web client’s connection is slow, and can disconnect in the midst of a lengthy, time-consuming transfer.
