A New Site From the California Digital Library Explores the "Landscape of Digital Data"

Direct to Data Pub Blog and Feed

From a CDL Blog Post by Patricia Cruse:

Data management plans, data publication, and calls for open data are raising  the visibility of digital data as a medium to be addressed by a wide community of researchers, libraries, museums and data centers.  As a way to encourage a conversation on these issues, the California Digital Library has created a new site for exploring the landscape of digital data: Data Pub (http://datapub.cdlib.org).  Similar to public houses throughout history, we hope that this site and blog will serve as a centerpiece for discussing digital data topics – ye olde data public house.

Topics Covered Include:

  • Data Publication
  • Data Sharing
  • Data Archiving
  • Data Citation
  • Open Data
  • Open Science

Groups at CDL involved in the project are the University of California Curation Center (UC3) and the CDL Publishing Group.

Contributions Welcome
