NIH to Host Workshop on Role of Generalist Repositories to Enhance Data Discoverability and Reuse Feb. 11-12 in Bethesda, Md.
Register by Feb. 4 to Attend In-Person
The Office of Data Science Strategy at the National Institutes of Health and the National Library of Medicine are hosting a workshop on the Role of Generalist Repositories to Enhance Data Discoverability and Reuse on Feb. 11-12. 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:
- Hear from generalist repositories about how they see themselves in the larger biomedical data repository landscape.
- Understand from institutional data repositories how they are creating suites of solutions for their researchers and how they see generalist repositories fitting in this landscape.
- Consider desired characteristics of data repositories and how they relate to institutional expectations of data storage/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 will also be available. Register for in-person or virtual attendance by Feb. 4.
