"ACRL Presents: Open Data Repositories - Creating Equitable and Sustainable Data Access"
The push for open data has become ubiquitous, but challenges are still ahead in attaining equitable and sustainable access through disciplinary, institutional, and publisher repositories. This webcast will briefly review the current landscape of data repositories and the challenges researchers continue to face. We'll discuss how repositories present opportunities and threats to equitable and sustainable access. We'll then explore the DataONE model and how this NSF-funded network of data repositories is implementing best practices for deposit, provenance, access, sustainability, and reuse for earth sciences data.
