NIH Workshop on the Role of Generalist Repositories to
Enhance Data Discoverability and Reuse
February 11–12, 2020
Lister Hill Auditorium, NIH Main Campus, Bethesda, MD
The Office of Data Science Strategy at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Library of Medicine are hosting a workshop on the Role of Generalist Repositories to Enhance Data Discoverability and Reuse on February 11–12, 2020. The workshop will be held at the Lister Hill Auditorium on the NIH main campus in Bethesda, MD.
The primary goals of the workshop are to:
- Learn how generalist repositories see themselves in the larger biomedical data repository landscape.
- Understand how institutional data repositories are creating suites of solutions for their researchers and how they see generalist repositories fitting into this landscape.
- Consider desired characteristics of data repositories and how they relate to institutional expectations of data storage and preservation solutions.
- Explore adoption of common infrastructure, standards, and federated search solutions to enable greater discoverability of NIH research data across federated data repositories.
- Address the role of data curators in ensuring that data and metadata are sufficiently well curated to enhance discovery and enable reuse.
Workshop registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis. Attendees are expected to fund their own travel and board. Virtual attendance also will be available.
