Databib

With support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, the libraries of Purdue and Pennsylvania State University have collaborated to create Databib: an online, annotated bibliography of research data repositories. A number of academic and research libraries are taking an active role in data curation, applying library science principles to help address the data deluge. Librarians are helping researchers formulate funder-required data plans, adapting library practice to help organize and describe research datasets, developing data collections and data repositories, performing digital preservation, and teaching data literacy. Librarians are in a good position to provide these services; unfortunately, there is currently no framework in place to support the organization and discovery of data repositories. Many funding agencies are requiring their sponsored researchers to submit their data to repositories without giving further instructions to them. What repositories are appropriate for a researcher to submit his or her data? How do potential users find appropriate data repositories and discover datasets that meet their needs? How can librarians help patrons who are looking for data find and integrate datasets into their research, learning, or teaching? Databib has been created to help address these needs for librarians, data users, data producers, publishers, and funding agencies.

Digitization Projects Registry

“The Digital Registry is a directory listing of U.S. Government publication digitization efforts. Its goal is to provide a comprehensive listing of all these digitization efforts.” Prior to the Internet, U.S. Government publications were distributed by hard copy via Federal depository libraries and for purchase through U.S. Government Bookstores. Today, information is made available online and efforts are underway to digitize earlier, printed publications. “Libraries, government agencies, or other non-profit institutions contribute their time and resources to obtain official tangible copies of these publications, digitize them, and make them publicly available online” [from About the Registry]. Online browsing is indexed by subject category or alphabetically by project title.
