Chair (s): 
TAB Liaison: 
Helen Glaves

Building on the work of the Data Rescue IG, the Data Conservation IG will both expand scope to all types of data (both digital and analog), and focus on decision-making topics including:

  • How are data sets prioritized for rescue or conservation?
  • How are risk factors defined, assessed, and/or categorized?
  • How is funding prioritized and/or secured?

More information will be added as the group moves forward.

WDS/RDA Assessment of Data Fitness for Use WG Outputs and Recommendations

This statement describes the background, efforts and outputs of the WDS/RDA Assessment of Data Fitness for Use Working Group. This group was chartered to develop criteria, procedures for assessment of research data fitness for use, along with a means to communicate this assessment to others. It concluded with development of a) criteria for research dataset fitness for use compared against the CoreTrustSeal requirements and FAIR principles, and b) a checklist for evaluation of dataset for fitness for use meant to supplement the CoreTrustSeal Repository Certification process. The checklist carries with it numerous caveats that exemplify the broad landscape surrounding dataset fitness assessment that this working group has mapped.
