Several organizations have begun compiling lists of
repositories of research data. These can

as for discovery for secondary data use.
Tool to identify repositories of research data. Users can search (including field-level
searching) or browse by subject or title.
Each entry provides a description, standardized subjects, access, start

Anyone is able to suggest or edit repository listings, which then are
reviewed and committed by an editorial board.
This is the same list that is re-displayed on the DataCite web site. Hosted by the Purdue University Libraries.
