- Data Provider: is a type of agent responsible for the creation and/or dissemination, accessibility of data to a consumer
- Data Repository: provides a service for human and machine to make data discoverable/searchable through collection(s) of metadata
- Data Seeker: searches for data to satisfy a need for data
The task force has drafted three best practices for each identified actor in their role to make data discoverable:
There is also an ongoing activity on
Environmental scanning of search features as offered by repositories (work-in-progress. Repository managers/developers are welcome to add their search features to the environmental scanning document.)
This task force will seek comments from the group members, other RDA IG/WG, and data community at large, and incorporate comments into final version.
This task force has a virtual meeting every four weeks. The notes from each meeting is available for the task force’s wiki page.
