Databib: A Global Catalog of Research Data Repositories

Presenter 1

Bielefeld University

Databib (http://databib.org) is a curated, global, online catalog of research data repositories. Librarians and other information professionals have identified and cataloged over 500 data repositories that can be easily browsed and searched by users or integrated with other platforms or cyber infrastructure. Databib can help researchers find appropriate repositories to deposit their data, and it gives consumers of data a tool to discover repositories of datasets that meet their research or learning needs. Users can submit new repositories to Databib, which are reviewed and curated by an international board of editors. All information from Databib has been contributed to the public domain using the Creative Commons Zero protocol. Supported machine interfaces and formats include RSS, OpenSearch, RDF/XML, Linked Data (RDFa), and social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, and Google+. In this session, we will give a demonstration of Databib and give an overview of how researchers, librarians, funding agencies, students, data centers, software developers, and other users can utilize and integrate it.
