ACRL Posts Comments on Public Access to Digital Data Resulting from Federally Funded Research

From the ACRL Insider:

Last week, ACRL submitted comments in response to the request for information (RFI) issued November 3, 2011, by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). ACRL recommended approaches for ensuring long-term stewardship and encouraging broad public access to unclassified digital data that results from federally funded scientific research. ACRL’s comments address the first nine questions posed in the RFI about policy for preservation, discoverability and access. This second set of comments follows our earlier comments to OSTP on December 21 about public access to the peer-reviewed scholarly publications that result from federally funded scientific research.
