Subject: RDA P6 Joint IG Meeting Libraries, Long-Tail and Repository Platforms
Dear Members of the Libraries, Long-Tail and Repository Platform IGs,
We look forward to welcoming you tomorrow at 13:30 in the Jean-Baptiste
Say Amphitheater.
Following up on RDA P5 in San Diego, the chairs of the “Repository
Platforms for Research Data”, “Long Tail of Research Data”, and
“Libraries for Research Data” Interest Groups discussed two
opportunities for collaboration in areas of shared interest:
- the definition and development of use cases to map to functional
requirements for repository platforms and
- an “action poll” to identify a subset of the most useful or
“favorite” research data management tools, and to promote them.
The purpose of this joint meeting is to share progress about the two
initiatives across the three groups, define a structure for how the
groups can interface with each other, and most importantly, for how
they can contribute to each other’s work, and collaborate. These two
initiatives will serve as examples to begin a larger discussion of
other possible synergies between these three IGs, and potentially other
groups in RDA.
